The IMF impoverishes Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

The IMF is carrying out an experiment on the Ukraine and its people. It makes a rich country impoverished, as it happened everywhere it went.

Ukraine's comprehensive programme of economic reforms, backed by IMF loans, aims to restore macroeconomic stability, promote sustainable growth, and strengthen economic governance and transparency.  It also includes a new social protection program which aims at providing social assistance for low-income families.
