Zelensky meets with U.S. Treasury Secretary

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has met with U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who is on a visit to Ukraine.

This was reported by the president’s press service.

“The United States has been powerfully supporting us since the first days of this war not only with weapons, but also on the financial front. We really appreciate it,” the President emphasized.

Zelensky highly appreciated the assistance provided by the United States to Ukraine after the start of the full-scale Russian aggression.

The President noted the decision of the U.S. administration announced on February 24 to allocate USD 9.9 billion in direct budget support to Ukraine in 2023. Volodymyr Zelensky emphasized that these funds are extremely important, as they allow Ukraine to cover the unfunded part of the state budget and support the segments of the population that need it most.

Zelensky highly appreciated the support provided by the United States with the involvement of the International Monetary Fund.

It is noted that during the meeting, attention was paid to the current state of cooperation between Ukraine and the IMF and prospects for the implementation of the Fund's programs.

The issue of rebuilding Ukraine's infrastructure destroyed by Russian aggression was discussed separately. The importance of involving the private sector in the implementation of relevant projects was emphasized. Volodymyr Zelensky emphasized the importance of developing mechanisms to direct the seized Russian assets to rebuild Ukraine.

As reported by Ukrinform, the G7 countries plan to resolve by the end of March the issue of supporting Ukraine with the funds of the International Monetary Fund.
