The tasks of the IMF in Ukraine are to determine the necessary volumes of financing for Ukraine in 2023.

This was stated by the head of the Foundation, Kristalina Georgieva, at the International Expert Conference on the Restoration of Ukraine in Berlin.
"We see it as our task to determine macroeconomic indicators for Ukraine and consider various scenarios - slow or accelerated development, in order to respond and encourage the measures that Ukraine should take to accelerate its path to the European Union. It is necessary to ensure that funding is guaranteed and that it is provided," Georgieva said, noting that she had also announced this to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

She said that according to the results of the IMF mission, Ukraine's budget deficit-2023 is estimated at $3 billion monthly, but it is also necessary to import gas and restore infrastructure, taking into account which this amount could grow to $4 billion.
"And if the destruction is even greater, it will reach up to $5 billion," the head of the IMF added.
Georgieva noted that the work of the mission and the Fund is aimed at structured funding, so she supported the proposals to create a platform for the allocation of such funding.
