WASHINGTON — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Sunday he spoke with IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva about Ukraine’s financial stability and the country’s post-war reconstruction.
“Discussed with IMF Managing Director Georgieva the issue of ensuring Ukraine’s financial stability & preparations for post-war reconstruction. We have clear plans for now, as well as a vision of prospects. I’m sure cooperation between the IMF & Ukraine will continue to be fruitful,” Zelenskiy said in a tweet.
Georgieva confirmed the call in a tweet later in the day. “Thank you,” she wrote, addressing Zelenskiy’s twitter handle, “for the very good call today.” She wrote support is “essential to lay the foundations for rebuilding a modern competitive #Ukraine”
Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said earlier he will attend the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings in Washington this week and will seek more financial assistance for Ukraine.
