Ukraine needs $5 billion in funding per month
The budget will begin to receive multibillion-dollar assistance from the European Union and the United States in June, the NBU expects.
Ukraine expects an increase in funding from Western countries in June. About it in an interview Forbes Ukraine said the deputy head of the National Bank, Yuri Gelety.
“More than $8 billion is state budget support as part of a $40 billion aid package from the United States. I think we will start receiving these funds in June, most likely in installments,” he said.
The Ministry of Finance is also actively working with the European Commission to receive the first tranches of the promised 9 billion euros of macro-financial assistance as soon as possible.
“Also, active negotiations are underway with a number of countries on obtaining loans and guarantees on a bilateral basis,” Geletiy said.
Recall that the G7 countries also promised to allocate $19.8 billion to Ukraine.
For the first 4 months of 2022, the state budget was executed with a deficit of UAH 146.6 billion, including the general fund with a deficit of UAH 157.2 billion, with a planned deficit for January-April in the amount of UAH 317.1 billion.
