Maria Zakharova: The statement by the head of the IMF that Ukraine surprised the world is the phrase of the century

Maria Zakharova, the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, made an ironic comment about the statement by the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christian Lagarde, about “the growth of the economy of Ukraine”.




“When pumping 6,7 billion in less than a year into a not-so-big country (and, according to President Poroshenko, this is only 38% of the target amount), even a dead economy will move. Well, the fact that Ukraine surprised the world is the phrase of the century, ”the newspaper reports in its Facebook message. "Sight".

On Saturday, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said at a press conference in Kiev that the fund was impressed with the progress of the Ukrainian authorities in carrying out reforms.

“I have to say that Ukraine surprised the world by achieving what it achieved in a short period of time. It was very difficult to achieve the macroeconomic stabilization that is now being consolidated, to get an economy that is already showing signs of recovery, ”she said.

It is worth recalling that on August 27, the Ukrainian authorities reported reaching an agreement with international creditors to write off 3.6 billions of dollars of public debt on bonds worth 18 billions of dollars.

    "Holders of Ukrainian Eurobonds maturing in September and October of 2015 said in a letter that they view the recent deal on debt restructuring as dishonest because of issues related to lengthening the payment term."- Apparently the "citizens" came out of a hypnotic dream ... So restructuring is again under a BIG question.

        “With an incomplete year of pumping $ 6,7 billion into a not-so-large country
        Have you forgotten about the “pumping”? .. it’s much longer to give, but much more will be necessary, and Ukraine is not Greece, no one will stand on ceremony.

          Yeah, marvelous !!! The fall of Ukraine’s GDP in 1 half-year 2015 -14,7% in relation to the same period 2014., which in turn fell on 10% in relation to the 1 half year 2013. That is, the total fall in GDP for the 1,5 years of the junta is more than 25% and this is growth and stabilization ??? Something with Kiev air is wrong or with water if Lagarde carries such nonsense.

    Dill successfully learns to borrow more heavily, and then write off more from the debt. So, in general, the budget will soon come to plus.

      But what does she learn from her? She’s been begging like a beggar all her life. Even a homeless person has a conscience, if he didn’t give it a second time, he won’t do it. And these are constantly battling all over the world. But they, like the Baltic states, got the best factories. An advanced industry. And all this to be shouted, to take care of the world? I don’t understand how our government doesn’t understand. It’s enough of its costs, but it puts money into this holey barrel.

          hi
          If Madame Lagarde, in all hearing, throws such words, understanding, of course, how far from being a stupid person, the fantastic nature of her statement, then with a high probability we can conclude - in the near future the IMF will not give Ukraine money ...

        Ukraine surprised the world
        Inspired by:
        A gynecologist with 20 years of experience succumbed to the entreaties of friends to say goodbye to his bachelor life and tie himself up in marriage. The next day, without much bother, he places an ad in the newspaper:
        “I’m looking for a woman who can surprise me at least with something”

    Ukraine the whole world was able to surprise, and not just the IMF.
    Although maybe Lagarde poured hohloperidol in coffee and suffered her surprise by the achievements of the Square.

      You don’t even need to pour anything. The situation in the country itself is inadequately acting on Western minds, like a drug. They have an uncontrolled desire to praise everyone and everything. It is necessary to somehow justify the invested (thrown out) tens of billions.

      After these statements, I would have mistrusted Christine Lagarde even to go shopping at the market. She entrusted Mad money to others and she is glad to litter it. Or is she hoping that the machine will print portraits of the presidents?

      They don’t want to give debts, they ask for gas, coal, electricity for free, huge lawsuits have been filed against Russia in Russia ...

      So our GDP is hardly considered normal by their GDP ...

    Maidan threw Ukraine into the abyss. The IMF promised to give a parachute for a soft landing, but Nuland mixed up and brought cookies with buns.
    Ukraine surprised the whole world with its fall rate.
    And she achieved what she achieved in a short period of time - the bottom!
    But they knocked from below !!!

    Russians harness for a long time, and then they don’t go anywhere. As long as the country is divided, all "anti-Russia" will be kept at the expense of the Russian Federation. The country is divided by the privatization of the USSR economy and the transfer of enterprises and land into the hands of inefficient owners. Such a situation cannot go on for long. If the economy collapses, then a lot of "Ukraine" will appear.
