"The mission begins its work today," he said.
The mission headed by Mykola Heorhiev will stay in Kyiv from 11 to 25 of November.
The IMF mission intends to discuss current economic situation, progress in implementation of the program, as well as government policies aimed at maintaining macroeconomic and financial stability and growth renewal with the country's authorities.
The talks will continue when the new government is formed.
Ukrainski Novyny reported earlier that IMF spokesman Gerry Rice said the decision on the allocation of the next tranche of stand-by arrangement for Ukraine can only be made in early 2015.
