Ukraine will resume cooperation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) if it reaches a consensus after gas talks with Russia, Deputy Prime Minister and Social Policy Minister Serhiy Tihipko said at a briefing at the Cabinet of Ministers, according to UKRINFORM.

"As for our cooperation [with the IMF], the gas negotiations with Russia are being delayed. At the end of [last] year, we managed to introduce new legislation on bankruptcy, which was of interest to the IMF, and two more bills that were also worked out with IMF specialists will be considered this week. Only tariffs will remain. As we know, we have different positions here. We are in talks with Russia and we would like to reduce the price [of gas]. If this is done, nothing will prevent the resumption of a program on cooperation with the IMF," Tihipko said.

As reported, Ukraine could not agree with the International Monetary Fund on the revision of the program of cooperation and the allocation of a new tranche of the loan until the question of a reduction in the gas price with Russia is agreed.
