“The main result of Davos is the fact that Ukraine is perceived as an active negotiator. And I think even the meeting of the President of Ukraine (Poroshenko â€” ed.) with Christine Lagarde, managing Director of the International monetary Fund, their half-hour conversation about that suggests… We expect the arrival of the IMF mission somewhere in the middle of February”, â€” quotes Danylyshyn, the Ukrainian “channel 5”.
