Ukraine must at all costs to “get down” with the financial needle of the IMF, because this collaboration adversely affects the life of the state. In particular, the IMF too much influence on government action.
This was stated by the Governor of the Odessa region Mikhail Saakashvili. In this case, the Governor recalled his own experience during the presidency in Georgia.
“For us the ideal situation that the IMF was never there. From Georgia we derived the IMF in a year. Got rid of, thank God,” said the Governor.
He also stressed that the IMF has made the Ukrainian government a puppet and constantly intervenes in the internal policy of the country. Such influence cannot a priori be positive.
“The IMF — he, as a surgeon. And when you’re on the finger needs a band-aid, he says, why do the dressing, give you the whole hand cut off, why bother, not going to risk”, — said Saakashvili.
Remind, the Bank Goldman Sachs believe that the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is not dismissed because of fear of losing financial support from the IMF.
This is stated in a research note from Goldman Sachs.
