Ukraine stood up by the IMF

The Deputy Finance Minister reckoned they were due in yesterday; the Deputy Prime Minister had May 17 in his diary while Conny Lotze from the IMF said “we have no mission planned at the moment”. Oops.

The government wants to discuss a $19 billion loan that would replace an existing agreement of $16.4 billion. The IMF hasn’t confirmed the new loan. Double oops!

Organising drinking sessions in breweries springs to mind.
