Greece will not make the 1.6-billion-euro (1.8-billion-dollar) repayment due 30 June 2015 to the International Monetary Fund unless it strikes a deal in the coming hours with its creditors, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in Athens as the deadline loomed. He implied that his left-wing government would resign if Greeks vote 'yes' in a planned 05 July referendum on a renegotiated bailout. The Greek vote is widely seen as deciding whether the near-bankrupt country stays in the eurozone. No country has left the currency bloc since its founding in 1999.

An International Monetary Fund mission led by Ron van Rooden visited the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on 21-29 May to discuss recent developments and economic policies.

The team found that fiscal and monetary policies remain on track, and it stands ready to return to Kyiv to continue discussions after snap parliamentary elections are held in either July or September and once the new government has clarified its policy intentions,” said van Rooden.

Ukraine’s newly inaugurated President Volodymyr Zelensky dissolved the Verkhovna Rada, the nation’s parliament, during his inauguration on 20 May. Zelensky is currently in a legal battle with the Rada over his decision to call snap elections.
