The International Monetary Fund mission has cut its visit to Ukraine and will not review the cooperation programme, a source has told Ukrainian News.

"Today or tomorrow the mission is returning to Washington. There will be no review of the programme. The reason is parliament dissolution," the source said.

Certain personnel appointments in the presidential administration "did not go unnoticed" either, the source added.

On 21 May, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman met representatives of the IMF mission. He is expected to step down on 22 May. He suggested that after his dismissal President Volodymyr Zelenskyy should hold negotiations with the IMF mission and agree on a review.

The IMF mission came to Ukraine on 21 May. The Ukrainian parliament has not delivered on any of its commitments, in particular it did not pass the bill which would split the functions of the National Commission for the State Regulation of Financial Services Markets between the National Bank of Ukraine and the National Commission for Securities and Stock Market.
