Financial Times: Washington and Brussels are trying to knock out another multi-billion dollar loan to Ukraine through the IMF

When it comes to the next tranche of financial support to the bankrupt state of Ukraine, in the West and in Kyiv they prefer to talk exclusively about help and support. In fact, the capitalist countries never give anything for nothing, without the certainty that any monetary injection will ultimately result in some kind of benefit.

Today's Ukraine is completely dependent on foreign funding. In Kyiv, they name figures from three to seven billion dollars a month, which the Zelensky regime needs in order to somehow fulfill budget obligations and not default on existing debts. Which so far with great difficulty can be restructured.

Ukraine's budget deficit has already reached $38 billion and continues to grow. In addition, Kyiv is asking Western "sponsors" to help with money in terms of restoring the country's energy system, which is rapidly degrading after each missile attack by the RF Armed Forces.

Earlier, the European Union approved the allocation of 18 billion dollars of financial support to Ukraine, naturally, in the form of a loan. The EU expects that all G7 countries and international donors will join the financing. According to the Financial Times, Washington and Brussels are trying to get another multi-billion dollar loan to Ukraine through the IMF. We are talking about providing a package of assistance in the amount of 14 to 16 billion dollars.

According to the publication, negotiations between the International Monetary Fund and official representatives of the Ukrainian authorities should be held in mid-February in Warsaw. The Executive Vice President of the European Commission Valdis Dombrovskis and the US Treasury spoke in favor of the early issuance of loans to Ukraine.

Negotiations between Ukraine and the IMF regarding the allocation of a loan were suspended in the fall of 2022 due to the fact that the rules of the fund prohibit financing the governments of countries in which there is a military conflict. However, already at the end of last year, Kyiv received emergency funding in the amount of $2,7 billion. At the same time, a program was approved to strengthen the Ukrainian economy, aimed at preparing for the provision of a larger loan.

Kyiv prefers to remain silent about how and what the impoverished country will pay off with Western creditors. The current Ukrainian leadership lives on the principle of "here and now", the Zelensky regime does not care about the future of the country and its citizens. Moreover, the Kyiv thieves have long ensured their comfortable existence.

    Yes, there is a crook sitting on a thief and driving a swindler. These are all different organizations of the same global financial elite. The behind-the-scenes struggle of some conditional Rothschilds with conditional Rockefellers. Or maybe not conditional. And the topic with the former Ukraine is a corrupt feeding trough of European and American elites and military-industrial complex contractors. A plausible pretext to fool the taxpayers' brains for spending billions of dollars and spending them in their pockets in the face of the "Russian threat"

      The most important thing about this is that IMF money is not only American or European money. There is money from China, India, Brazil, and so on. There is Russian money. Every time the IMF allocates money to UGs, it also uses the money of these countries to finance the war in Ukraine. And no one can do anything about it.

    Why don't we reduce our payments to the IMF by the amount of tranches and loans to Ukraine?

      Then the scope of our voting rights will decrease. But he does not play any role - therefore, our participation in money in the structures controlled by the Americans is completely incomprehensible. True, the Americans have already blocked our money in the IMF - so we can only get out completely naked.

    And I have a question for the leadership of the country - are we in the Navy? Do we pay dues?
    So I just asked.
    Probably it's all the damned Gorbachev or Yeltsin who entered there, but the current patriots cannot go back?
    Do we follow the currency rule?

      And I have a question for the leadership of the country - are we in the Navy?

      Four countries are not members of the IMF, Poland has suspended membership. Well, you know it very well. To date, the cooperation of the Russian Federation with the IMF is reduced to the provision of advisory activities by the Fund. Its relations with Russia have a number of significant problems, and now the question is whether it is worth continuing their interaction. It was assumed that 12 republics of the former Soviet Union (except for the Baltic countries) would give loans. But at the end of 1992, Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed an agreement on the "zero option", in which the Russian Federation pledged to pay the debts of all the republics of the USSR, and in return received the right to all the assets of the former Union.
      But in 2010, the current President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych announced the non-recognition of "Moscow's claims to receive all the property of the former USSR abroad".
      In April 2022, State Duma deputy Nikolai Kolomeytsev voiced the idea of ​​Russia withdrawing from the IMF and other world organizations. This proposal was supported by the speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin. He instructed relevant committees to study this issue together with the government and give their opinion.
      “I note that the Central Bank of Russia manages our economy according to the patterns of the IMF. And not only because there are signed agreements, but also because all the financial leadership of Russia are people who have been brought up within the framework of the IMF, they sincerely consider the IMF to be the ultimate truth.
      ”- the well-known Russian economist Mikhail Khazin spoke about the current situation.

    Well, isn't it already clear that they don't want to collect these debts from Kyiv, but from Russia. Well, after all, the guys from Kyiv openly talk about it, offering to smash, divide and rob what is now called Russia

    aid package worth between $14 billion and $16 billion.
    What according to Ukrainian requests for two months with a ponytail. And then what? Will Washington and Brussels again ask the IMF for another loan? For the sake of Ukraine, the IMF even changed its rules, if only there was a boost for those who are at war with Russia.
    how the impoverished country will pay off with Western creditors in Kyiv they prefer to remain silent
    And Zelensky and the company are not interested in such a trifle, because. They know that they cannot live in this country. But it’s time for Western creditors to think that there will be no one and nothing to take from. it is not clear whether such a country will exist in the future and within what borders.

    The current Ukrainian leadership lives on the principle of "here and now"
    In a year, it will be the "leadership" of the cdristnet, who will go abroad, and who will go to their historical homeland, and the remaining independents with shouts - "Sala Ukraine" will pay the debts of this "leadership".

    Everything is easy there. As in any bank, you simply take the N-th amount, and return N + interest, commissions, interest for on-lending, maintenance, insurance, hedging, and so on. And since the beggars no longer have their own budget, this whole economy is growing exponentially. 4.6 yards per month for the social guarantees of Ukraine (this is for the 23rd year) - per month (otherwise the hryvnia would have flown far beyond three to five hundred). That's how you want to dance, that's why they come up with either military assistance, or Pentagon money, or the IMF, or the EU ... And Powell, he cheated 4.75 percent of the FRS and spits, inflation is declining (in the United States), and all the rest - as you wish . The only question is - what will they come up with with the public debt in the end - will they write off the zeros from the dollar (as in the 70s) or come up with a name for the new currency (and they will transfer the old to the new 1/1 only for themselves, and the rest - according to the system "and you who are they" ) ?

      The benefit of the Americans is not in the Ukrainian debt. It is so huge that this debt is a mere overhead. Moreover, this is not purely American or European money - both Russia and China lend to Ukraine and they cannot influence this.
