The approval of the second review of the programme means that the third tranche of up to US$900 million can be transferred to the Ukrainian government.

"Now we will work on preparing for the third review in the spring. Stay tuned – this week is very important for us and our future," Rashkovan added.

Background: In November, Ukraine and the IMF reached a staff-level agreement on the second review of the Extended Fund Facility (EFF), which paves the way for a tranche of about US$900 million.
