The confirmation of the new government of Volodymyr Groysman on April 14 paved the way for unlocking the third tranche of the $17.5 billion IMF bailout for Ukraine. The disbursement was to arrive in October but was delayed first by disagreement over the fiscal policy changes and the 2016 budget and later by the political uncertainty.
The $1.7 billion tranche will not only replenish the Ukrainian central bank reserves but will also unfreeze additional $4 billion of aid from the U.S., European Union and other donors.
For Ukraine there was $17.5 Billion from the IMF since they are a most favoured nation and anti-Russia and even allowed Americans Government officials to take Cabinet positions in the Government of Ukraine. Yes their constitution was changed to allow foreigners to take up Cabinet level positions of power in the Ukrainian Government.
Ukraine’s new finance minister is a former U.S. State Department employee who graduated from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. Even though the struggling country’s new cabinet now contains three high-profile foreigners, it remains the focus of a crude internal power struggle that will hamper crucial economic changes and could lead to a financial meltdown.
However, if you are not playing ball with the IMF according to their rules and are starting to make demands on debt restructuring and payments and the value of the debt itself such as in Greece then the situation is very different. In that latter case then the IMF comes down on you like a house of bricks and demands repayment and there no pretty photo ops with the head of the IMF Christine Lagarde.
The Guardian reports;
After what was described as a cordial meeting between the IMF’s managing director, Christine Lagarde, and the Greek prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, the fund said it was only prepared to support the recession-ravaged eurozone country on a strings-attached basis.
The IMF took part in the first two Greek bailouts but is concerned that, at 175% of GDP, Greece’s debts are too burdensome and will prevent a lasting recovery. Lagarde told Tsipras the IMF regarded reform of Greece’s pension system, which accounts for 17.7% of GDP, as vital.
Yes the Greeks have to reduce their pensions while the Ukrainians are getting new loans and forgiveness of old debts; how convenient for the Khazarian Zionist Mafia. Why such a focus on old age pensions? Because it was a control and feat mechanism that could be squeezed to to engender submission.
Whether you turn left or turn it was the same usual suspects behind all the major manufactured crises of the world and it was no different in Ukraine. Listen to what this Ukrainian General says openly about the Khazarian Zionist Mafia running his country.
