IMF: Ukraine Needs $4 BILLION a Month to Keep Govt From Collapsing

Ukraine needs between $3 billion and $4 billion every month to keep its government from collapsing amid the ongoing conflict with Russia, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said.

“Indeed, the Ukrainian authorities have done an impressive job in managing their economy through extremely difficult circumstances following Russia’s invasion,” IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said at the Second Ministerial Roundtable Discussion for Support to Ukraine in Washington, D.C.

Georgieva said Ukraine’s financial requirements would remain strong throughout 2023.

“This requires actions on the part of the authorities but, importantly also the international community,” Georgieva said.

“The external financing requirement will remain large as long as the war is ongoing. Our current thinking is that the financing requirements will be around US$3-US$4 billion per month in 2023,” she added.

Georgieva said the billions of dollars in financial aid would go towards rebuilding infrastructure, energy imports, and basic social services in Ukraine.

“We all have to be alive to the possibility that social and infrastructure requirements could push financing needs beyond this range, depending on the evolution of the war,” she noted.

Volodymyr Zelensky’s appeal to donors

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky made an appeal to international donors for billions of dollars the same day as the IMF’s estimate.

According to Zelensky, his country needs roughly $38 billion to $55 billion to cover next year’s estimated budget deficit.

The Ukrainian leader said another $17 billion was needed to help the country rebuild critical infrastructures, like housing, energy facilities, and schools.

“The more assistance Ukraine gets now, the sooner we’ll come to an end to the Russian war, and the sooner and more reliably we will guarantee that such a cruel war will not spread into other countries,” Zelensky said via video teleconference to finance ministers at the World Bank and IMF annual meetings on Wednesday.

$35 billion in grant and loan financing has already been provided by the IMF and World Bank to Ukraine this year alone, Georgieva said on Wednesday.

The IMF and World Bank have already provided Ukraine with $35 billion in grant and loan financing this year, Georgieva said on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen suggested they would continue to pressure the United States to provide aid to Ukraine over the next year.

Yellen urged financial donors to “keep stepping up” to provide financing to Ukraine, noting Washington “recently reaffirmed our commitment to Ukraine through congressional approval of another $4.5 billion in grant assistance, which we will begin to disburse in the coming weeks.”

“This is in addition to the $8.5 billion in grants already disbursed, making the United States the largest provider of economic assistance to Ukraine,” Yellen said.

“As Russia’s shameful actions continue, we must continue our joint efforts and begin planning for Ukraine’s needs in 2023,” Yellen added.

Let them collapse, and quit wasting America’s money. The sooner they go down, the sooner our politicians will be prevented from laundering money there.

I think it’s a bunch of bull💩. There are enough issues in the United States high inflation, high gas, high food, high energy costs but NO RELIEFE for us but we keep sending billions to them. Why the h**l don’t they start trying to do peace talks. Zelenski has a 35 million dollar home in Florida along with 8 other homes. Private jets, bought his parents an 8 million dollar mansion and has 1.4 billion dollars in off shore accounts that no country can touch. This is nothing but money laundering

Even if it is worthy idea to fund Ukraine, they have a terrible record of corruption. I fear much money will go to lining the pockets of corrupt officials instead helping their people.

Stop funding the Ukriane and let them rot. They were dumb enough to allow America to use them to attack Russia, so give them nothing. Let the rich Globalist Elites fund the Uki’s right out of there own pockets.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
