Following the talks with the IMF and within existing negative trends in the economy of Ukraine, the Finance Ministry has developed a parcel of laws on amendments to the 2015 State Budget, as well as changes to the tax, customs, pension legislation. This will reduce the deficit of the national energy company Naftogaz Ukrainy and the Pension Fund. After review and approval of these initiatives by the Government, they were submitted to the Parliament.

During the meetings, the members of the Government expressed the hope that over the next few days MPs would be able to get acquainted with the proposed changes and without delay, with the understanding of their responsibility to the people of Ukraine to adopt them in the near future in order to ensure the earliest possible consideration by the IMF Board of Directors of the issue on granting a loan for Ukraine.
