Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde issued a statement from Belgium saying that Ukraine is set to receive about $40 billion (£26.2 billion) in funding over the next four years, nearly half of which will come from the IMF.
Yahoo News Reports: The ex-Soviet republic is on the brink of bankruptcy after a year of political upheaval and war and was hoping to clinch a deal with the IMF to unlock the wider financing package.

“From these various sources taken together, a total financing package of around $40 billion is estimated over the four year period,” she said.
The IMF’s staff-level agreement, which still needs to be approved by the IMF’s board, came after Ukraine’s government showed “a determination to reform like we have never seen,” Lagarde said.
Ukraine has agreed to front-load reforms including energy tariff increases, bank restructuring, governance reform of state-owned enterprises and an anti-corruption agenda, she added.
Leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France returned to the negotiating room in Minsk on Thursday, as a document seen by Reuters suggested the sides may agree to end fighting in eastern Ukraine with a ceasefire starting on Feb. 14.
“The main risk of course relates to the geopolitical developments that may affect market and investor confidence,” Lagarde said.
