Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has said that Ukraine may obtain the next tranche of the IMF loan only after the Verkhovna Rada adopts the State Budget for 2010.

By the end of this year, the Ukrainian government and IMF plan to approve a decision on further cooperation. "This is a completely different model of cooperation that does not involve additional borrowing of money," she explained.

According to the Prime Minister, the State Budget for 2010 was not adopted because parliament refused to consider it.

"The fact that the country is entering 2010 without a budget is the direct responsibility and fault of those parliamentary factions that didn’t consider the budget that was submitted by the government on time", Yulia Tymoshenko said during a press conference in the Cabinet of Ministers.

Yulia Tymoshenko stated that the government does not agree with the decision of the Verkhovna Rada to return the draft bill on the state budget for 2010 for revision. "We don’t consider the budget as subjected for revision. It remained in parliament. The parliament failed to fulfill its functions," she explained.
