In 2020 and 2021 Ukraine needs to pay about $10 billion

Ukraine’s problem in the debt situation is not investment, but debt refinancing. A default is hardly possible, but the state will not be able to cope on its own without the support of the IMF, the European Union and the World Bank.

This was stated by economist Andrei Dligach, commenting on the country’s possible refusal to fulfill its debt obligations.

According to him, the state needs debt refinancing. The problem can be solved in various ways, but without the International Monetary Fund, the European Union and the World Bank, Ukraine will have to solve the issue on its own.

“There are securities and other ways. But without the IMF and without our cooperation with the EU and the World Bank tied to the IMF loan, we can be left alone with the problem of debt”, – the expert believes.

The economist focused on the fact that in the current 2021 Kiev needs to be paid about $10 billion. Accordingly, to pay this amount, a larger amount of funds should be attracted than $10 billion.
