"The reason is rather plain: shenanigans with the appointment of a NABU auditor, as the Bankova [Presidantial Administration - ed.] wants to have a puppet auditor that will actually disrupt the work of the bureau," he said.
"The International Monetary Fund is a structure that makes carefully weighed decisions. No doubt, there is a position of some countries that support us. However, if we want to deceive those who offer us their hand, it won't work," the mayor added.
As previously reported, the IMF postponed sine die the consideration of the allocation of a $1 billion tranche to Ukraine in order to assess the impact of the Donbas trade blockade on further development of the country's economy.
Later, the issue of allocation of a $1 billion tranche to Ukraine under Expanded Financing Facility (EFF) program disappeared from the March 20 agenda of the IMF Executive Board.
