1. The general subject re. the IMF seems to have been energy pricing

which I would assume is cross related to the military budget inasmuch energy price increases would be the origin of necessary funds.

As a reminder Ukraine's consumers were paying only 25% of cost for gas. That was increased by 50% a months or so back to be followed by two further increases of 20% by early 2015 to reach .25 x 1.5 x 1.2 x 1.2......54% of cost. Baulking against such increases has gone on there for years.

Although not necessarily discussed at the time their electricity prices are due to increase ten fold as part of the EU association agreement !
