No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine and Ukraine's relations with its foreign partners.
The claim is made without evidence and is only the latest in a string of pro-Kremlin conspiracy theories alleging that the Ukrainian authorities are purposely leading the country and people toward destruction for short-term financial gain.
The condition of every loan is predefined and usually concerns different aspects of economic policies, aimed at reforming and, thus improving, major sectors of the Ukrainian economy. See, for instance, a recent agreement between Ukraine and the IMF.
The latest memorandum between Ukraine and the IMF specifies, for instance, four policy priorities: (i) mitigating the economic impact of the crisis, including by supporting households and businesses; (ii) ensuring continued central bank independence and a flexible exchange rate; (iii) safeguarding financial stability while recovering the costs from bank resolutions; and (iv) moving forward with key governance and anti-corruption measures to preserve and deepen recent gains.
The latest EU macro-financial assistance to Ukraine was given on the condition that Ukraine continues reforms in such sectors as countering corruption, improvement of state management, energy policies, etc.
Previously pro-Kremlin disinformation claimed that in exchange for IMF loans Kyiv will carry out the genocide of Ukrainians, that Ukrainians will be turned into the cheap labour force, and that Ukraine spends half of its budget to pay debts.
