Recent negotiations between the IMF leadership and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine were quite successful, executive director of International Fund of Blazer Oleh Ustenko said during the roundtable "Relations between Ukraine and the IMF in the global geo-financial context", ForUm correspondent reports.

According to the expert, the IMF recognized that Ukraine fulfills its obligations.

"However, the rise in gas prices remains the stumbling block," the economist said.

In addition, he stressed that the IMF does not insist on raising rates per se, since it does not have such an authority.

"However, the Fund requires further narrowing of the budget deficit, however there are few possibilities to do this. One of them is raising tariffs. And despite all the positive in our dialogue with the IMF in future these requirements will be not diminished, but tightened. Still, after the New Year you can expect a new qualitative stage of collaboration with the IMF," Ustenko concluded.
