During the negotiations in Brussels Prime
Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman have agreed with President of the
European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker that Ukraine
will receive the second tranche of macro-financial assistance in the amount of
EUR 600 million in the coming weeks.
"This will be done in the coming weeks. I think that
after having watched the reform efforts in Ukraine, the Ukrainians have a right to see
something in return", said Jean-Claude Juncker
following the negotiations during a joint with the Prime Minister of Ukraine
communication with journalists.
The decision taken by the European Commission to disburse
macro-financial support worth EUR 600 million is the proof of the high level of
confidence in the Government and the Prime Minister and is viewed as tangible
support for Ukraine at the time of unprecedented challenges.
"These funds will be directed to the State budget of
our country, and they will have a positive impact on macroeconomic
stability", said Volodymyr Groysman.
