Herbst: IMF not to give money to representatives of old Ukrainian authorities

The IMF will not give money to the representatives of the “old regime”, whose number in the Government and the Parliament is greater than that of the reformers.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Herbst said this during his visit to Slovyansk, government-controlled town in Donetsk region, News of Donbas website reports.

He added that Ukraine had management problems.

"The reforms are the main issue. There is a struggle between the old and the new Ukraine in this issue. The International Monetary Fund has no reasons for giving at least one dollar to the representatives of the ‘old’ Ukraine. Both the President and the Prime Minister should understand this," Herbst said.

The West is on the side of the "new" Ukraine, he added.
