Yushchenko asks Tymoshenko to revise decisions taken to get IMF loan
The President sent a respective letter to the Prime Minister
President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko asks Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko to thoroughly revise and work out government’s decisions, which were taken to get the regular tranche of the IMF loan.
According to the President`s press-office, the President sent a respective letter to the Prime Minister.
Victor Yushchenko stressed that he was glad to receive the information that the government made a number of decisions necessary to get the regular tranche of the IMF loan.
However, according to the President, the resolution, adopted by the government on April 14, 2009, contains a number of provisions that have nothing in common with the issues that must have been regulated within frames of the collaboration with the International Monetary Fund, and, at the same time, these provisions contain significant drawbacks.
Thus, the President turns attention to the fact that, in particular, the government adopted five resolutions introducing additional paid services that may be provided by budget institutions in such important spheres of public activities as liquidation of emergency consequences, fire prevention, work of law-enforcement agencies, and social-cultural services to population.
Besides, Victor Yushchenko stressed, the attempts to provide payment of salaries to budget sphere workers through a mechanism of charitable donations have nothing in common with IMF recommendations.
Victor Yushchenko is confident that the government’s decisions, which are not directly connected with the IMF proposals, merely introduce unclear schemes of financial support of the state administration sector, which will cause dramatic consequences for public as well as for economical life of the country.
