and the Monetary Fund have reached agreement on a new USD 5.5 billion programme to boost the country's growth and economic reforms.

The agreement, which still must be approved by the fund's management, was reached in a Saturday telephone call between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and managing director Kristalina Georgieva.

Details of how the money would be used over the plan's three years weren't given.

Zelenskiy, who was elected in April on a platform focusing on economic reforms and fighting corruption, said in a statement that the programme will accelerate growth.
