The International Monetary Fund didn't return the joint appeal of the president, the prime minister - the minister and the head of National bank of Ukraine back, and only asked additional questions.

It was declared by the representative of Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc Sergey Teryokhin in Radio "Svoboda" interview, making comments on letter return to the IMF on completion.

According to Teryokhin, "the letter of three" didn't give answers to all questions which the IMF wanted to hear, - first of all, concerning a budget deficit and ways of its financing.

"The letter wasn't sent back. But additional questions were raised. The IMF disturbs an order of financing of a budget deficit, the budget deficit size", - the deputy declared.

"Those payments which go under social articles, according to specialists of Fund, aren't fair. It is a question of the "forgiven" pensions of deputies, presidents, judges, prosecutors... But those questions which were raised, are much shorter, than they were before making decision on granting to Ukraine of the credit of stand-by", - Teryokhin noted.

In turn, the director of economic programs of the Center of a name of Razumkov Vasily Yurchishin considers that rejection by the International Monetary Fund of the letter from the Ukrainian management can worsen and without that negative image of Ukraine.

In his opinion, it is equivalent to decrease in credit ratings.

"Unfortunately, the Ukrainian party didn't resort to careful coordination of these or those provisions in cooperation with the IMF. It can testify further that the Ukrainian power not really carefully listens to a position of the creditor", - Yurchishin noted.

"And consequently, of course, it can add negative image to what now exists at the international investors concerning Ukraine. That is, it lays down in one plane that the international rating agencies reduce credit ratings of Ukraine", - the expert emphasized.

It is known that according to mass media, the general address of the president Victor Yushchenko, the prime minister - the minister Yulia Timoshenko and the head of National bank Vladimir Stelmakh to the IMF was returned to senders on completion with additional questions.

For receiving the second tranche of the credit the International Monetary Fund demanded consolidation of actions of all branches of the power from Ukraine. And the main barrier to receiving these means of the IMF calls the present size of a budget deficit.

Except reduction of a budget deficit or finding of real sources of its financing, the IMF lays down to Ukraine some more conditions - in particular, allegedly increase of tariffs for gas of local production which is used for needs of the population, and increase in a retirement age.
