The European Union has welcomed the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of a bill banning the return of nationalized banks to their former owners. The head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Matti Maasikas wrote about this in his Twitter.
In his opinion, the adoption of this document, better known as the “anti-Kolomoisky” bill, will contribute to the economic stability of Ukraine.
“The European Union welcomes the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of a bill on banking regulation. This is a vital measure to protect public finances and Ukrainian taxpayers. For economic stability, transparency, the rule of law and continued financial support from the International Monetary Fund and the EU, “Maasikas said.
On May 13, the Ukrainian parliament passed Bill 2571-d “On Improving Some Mechanisms for Banking Regulation.”
Before the vote, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi arrived at the Verkhovna Rada and called on deputies to support the document. According to the President, it is about protecting the Ukrainian economy.
The adoption of this bill and the opening of the land market are the main requirements of the International Monetary Fund to continue cooperation with Ukraine.
According to the chairman of the National Bank of Ukraine Yakov Smoliy, the state will receive a tranche from the IMF after the signing of the law by the President.
