IMF says Ukraine needs modified bailout if it loses the east
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Ukraine's loss of its territory in the east would force the International Monetary Fund to re-design its $17 billion bailout of the country, and would require additional financing, the Fund warned on Thursday.
The IMF also said a deterioration in relations between Ukraine and Russia, which buys a quarter of Kiev's exports, could further hurt Ukraine's economy and also force an adjustment to its bailout, approved by the IMF board on Wednesday.
"A long-lasting disruption of relations with Russia that depresses exports, investment, and growth, or a loss of economic control over the East that reduces budget revenue would require a significant recalibration of the program and additional financing, including from Ukraine's bilateral partners," the IMF said in a staff report released on Thursday.
So it's fight or no bailout for you.
Looks like the Bankers want another war.
