Not to be confused with the EMF. Unbelievable!

Mr. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, MD from the International Monetary Fund paid a visit last week and in his press release said that Ukraine faces many challenges to ensure sustainable growth and to improve living standards.

I really wish these guys would make the transcripts of their meetings public, surely they discuss more than just rhetoric.

You can read the press release in full here although the only interesting thing to make from it is the reference as to how the IMF support the government in implementing its economic programme and how the IMF looks forward to continuing to work closely with the government and people of Ukraine.

So it looks like the IMF are happy with the way things are for now and are unlikely to put any pressure on the government to improve its democratic processes any time soon.
