3. Soundbite (English) IMF Communications Director Gerry Rice:
“Our immediate response at the IMF has been to to help Ukraine with their near-term financing needs. And, you know, the the the the response by the Ukrainian authorities, I have to say, has been remarkable. Back in March, we disbursed 1.4 billion in emergency financing to Ukraine. And then, as Eric rightly says, we had set up a so-called administered account. Now, this allows donors to channel further support to Ukraine and in a secure manner, loans or grants. And again, using our fiduciary infrastructure, Canada has pledged a billion in its forthcoming budget.”
