Ukraine will receive only $2B from its international partners in May.
In May 2022, Ukraine will receive up to $2B from its international partners against the required $5B per month, said Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko. Unfortunately, we will not have $5B in May. So far, we have received only $1.2B, and by the end of this month, we expect to receive up to $2B, said Marchenko. The Ministry of Finance may partially close the liquidity problem through military bonds, but the ministry can only raise $1B a month through this instrument. The minister explained that the National Bank is trying to support the government in this pivotal moment, and is fully coordinated with international partners. According to Finance Minister Marchenko and Prime Minister Denis Shmygal, Ukraine needs at least $5B a month to cover its operational budget needs.
