The amount of financing actually allocated to Ukraine by international partners in January-May of this year to cover the deficit amounted to $17.97 billion compared to $32.14 billion last year. This was announced by the Ministry of Finance on June 2.
Grants accounted for $6.16 billion, or 31.1%, including $6 billion from the United States, $52 million from Germany, $50 million from Spain, and $21 million each from Finland and Ireland.
The biggest creditor of Ukraine this year is the EU – 8.12 billion dollars, which has already exceeded the figure for the whole of last year, which amounted to 7.96 billion dollars.
This completes the top three in terms of IMF financing allocated this year – $2.706 billion against $2.693 billion last year.
Canada is next with $1.76 billion, followed by the World Bank and the UK with $0.55 billion and $0.50 billion, respectively.
