Yatseniuk explained he meant three legislation drafts.

"I'll remind you that those are laws concerning increase of the National Bank of Ukraine independence, laws allowing to reform the energy sector and restore order in the financial part of the national joint-stock company Naftohaz Ukrainy. We were conducting discussions with our coalition partners, and I am sure that the coalition will support not only those tree drafts, but also the whole plan of reforms, so that 2016 became a year of economic growth," the prime minister said.

The parliament has to adopt the new legislation necessary for cooperation with IMF by July.
