The International Monetary Fund is ready to provide financial assistance to Ukraine, IMF chief Christine Lagarde said in reply to an Itar-Tass question on Sunday.

On the sidelines of a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bank governors in Sydney Lagarde said if the Ukrainian authorities applied for help, economic or financial, the IMF would be ready to provide it. But the International Monetary Fund needed someone in Ukraine to discuss these issues.
