"I cannot tell you – there are ongoing discussions between the European Commission and [Finance] Minister [Oksana] Markarova to assess the extent to which the conditions have been met, there is ongoing dialogue, but I cannot give you any date," he said. As UNIAN reported, the European Council in June 2018 approved the fourth MFA program for Ukraine in the amount of EUR 1 billion. In December, the European Commission provided Ukraine with the first MFA disbursement worth EUR 500 million in the form of a loan at an interest rate of 1.25% per annum due in April 2033. On March 15, Ukraine&#39;s Finance Ministry reported that an EU evaluation mission was working in Ukraine to decide on the second MFA disbursement in the amount of EUR 500 million. The ministry said it expected the funds might be disbursed no earlier than April 2019.
