Brussels says Ukraine "not fully delivering" on EU, IMF benchmarks - journalist
EU officials say Ukraine is not fully fulfilling the requirements set both by the bloc and International Monetary Fund, according to RFE/RL's correspondent in Brussels Rikard Jozwiak.
"13 EU member states & close allies of Ukraine have authored a non-paper ahead of the FAC [Foreign Affairs Council] discussion on 19 March stating that "the government is not fully delivering on EU and IMF benchmarks. Civil society activists and experts warn of the risk of backsliding," Jozwiak wrote on Twitter.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini said during her recent Kyiv visit that there was no "Ukraine fatigue" in the EU.
The European Commission has offered that the European Parliament provide to Ukraine a new program of macro-financial assistance.
The International Monetary Fund said that Ukraine could count on a successful review of the Extended Fund Facility as early as May 2018 if the country's authorities showed progress in the implementation of required reforms.
