Igor Mazepa: where is Ukraine to take 8 billion of external debt for the payment of external debt in 2019?

Igor Mazepa: this year ends with a three-year period, during which Ukraine had a privilege not to pay its foreign debts. Which, in fact, is part of the restructuring agreement, which was implemented in the 15th year. In the next 14 months, Ukraine has to pay its external obligations a little more than $ 7 billion. Even the Ukrainian banks and the Ukrainian state-owned company must also pay about a billion dollars over the next 14 months to foreign creditors. And we get the figure of $ 8 billion.

Where in Ukraine to take the money. Some of the money has Ukraine, in fact, found. She has collected two billion dollars in foreign markets just a few weeks ago. The program with the IMF, which now I hope will be implemented or the basic conditions for Ukraine to receive the IMF tranche will be executed is $ 1.9 billion. Most likely, I hope, will come to Ukraine at the end of the 18th year. Together with the European Union and the world Bank Ukraine locomotive should get another half a billion dollars. Again-taki from the European Union and the world Bank. And in fact on the table the question remains – and where to get three billion dollars.

Provided that Ukraine will continue its successful cooperation with the IMF, this task is not as impossible. Most likely, the country will be part of the money to draw even in foreign markets. For example, in the following year (even though we all realize that there will be an election year or a year of two elections), I think that a billion and a half billion, Ukraine will be able to attract in the markets. Plus the same our state-owned companies – most likely “gas” or “Ukrzaliznytsya” will be released on the market will be able to attract. And with good recommendations on the Western creditors, particularly the IMF, Ukraine will be able to get even the missing half-billion dollars of private loans which will allow propetlyat through a busy schedule of repayment of external debts. Therefore, in the “Concord” we are still in the working-optimistic from the point of view of avoiding a massive devaluation from the point of view of not assumptions of default. And in fact, that the country is more or less will be able to continue their economic course.
