On May 21, the European Commission decided to transfer to Ukraine the profits from the blocked Russian assets. The amount is approximately EUR 3 billion. In the following years, the profit may increase and reach 5 billion euros.

In addition, the G7 countries are ready to approve a $50 billion loan to Ukraine secured by frozen Russian assets.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet of Ministers has approved a draft agreement with the United States to provide Ukraine with $7.9 billion in budget support as part of a $61 billion military aid package.

Also, the fourth review of Ukraine's cooperation program with the IMF has recently ended. In case of positive conclusions of the Fund's management, which we expect at the end of June, Ukraine will receive another tranche of the loan for USD 2.2 billion.
