Ukrainian Parliament hasn't adopted some IMF-friendly laws – finance minister

Ukrainian Parliament hasn't adopted some IMF-friendly laws – finance ministerFinance Minister of Ukraine Oleksandr Danyliuk has said that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) insists on lifting the moratorium on repossessing property of debtors of the national gas company Naftogaz Ukrainy.

"Unfortunately, we haven't adopted all laws we would like to have, and a law was passed that the IMF will demand to veto. The law imposes to a moratorium on reimbursement to Naftogaz," the minister told journalists in Kyiv on Tuesday.

Danyliuk said that this law conflicts with the agreements with the IMF.

"This is a very bad signal ahead of the meeting of the Board of Directors [of the IMF]. We are trying to settle the matter as quickly as possible," Danyliuk said.
