Gazprom-5851

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-05-01/imf-warns-ukraine-fight-east-or-no-moneyIMF approved the $17bn tranched loan to Ukraine last night, Gazprom gets paid; Ukraine gets its cash; and the door’s wide open for the US and EU to pour more ‘controlling influence’ into the divided nation… Except there’s one thing:

  • IF UKRAINE GOVERNMENT LOSES EFFECTIVE CONTROL OVER EAST OF COUNTRY, $17 BLN IMF BAILOUT WOULD NEED TO BE REDESIGNED

Which, roughly translated, appears to mean go to war with pro-Russian forces (and thus Russia itself if Putin sees his apparent countrymen in trouble) or you don’t get your money! Some other items of note include:

  • *IMF URGES UKRAINE TO REACH PRICE ACCORD WITH GAZPROM BY SEPT
  • *UKRAINE INFLATION MAY JUMP TO 16.2% THIS YEAR, IMF SAYS
  • *RUSSIA’S GAS PRICE INCREASE MAY WEAKEN HRYVNIA: IMF STAFF
