U.S. Sees Continued International Support for Ukraine
A debt deal between Ukraine and creditors marks a way forward and the United States expects the International Monetary Fund and international community to keep supporting the country, a senior U.S. Treasury official said on Tuesday.
The official, who asked not to be named in order to speak freely, said the IMF, the United States and other advanced economies were committed to supporting Ukraine as long as the country, whose economy has been hurt by the cost of fighting between government forces and Russian-backed separatists, keeps on with reforms.
Ukraine last month reached a deal with creditors to ease repayments on its $18 billion debt, preventing a unilateral debt default and keeping the country on track with its IMF-funded program. Details
