On Thursday, the IMF and Kiev reached a preliminary agreement on a $17.5 billion four-year-program to help Ukraine recover from the economic crisis, according to IMF Chief Christine Lagarde.

In Spring 2014, the IMF promised Kiev $17 billion in bailout loans to be paid over the course of two years. The latest program is part of a $40-billion package that, if approved, would be Ukraine’s fourth IMF bailout in 10 years.

The leaders of Ukraine, France, Germany, and Russia held a 16-hour summit in Minsk on Wednesday and early Thursday resulting in a new political deal focused on stopping the deadly conflict in eastern Ukraine that has claimed lives of more than 5,400 people since April 2014.

The new Minsk agreement calls for a ceasefire to begin at midnight on February 15 and for a mutual withdrawal of heavy weapons by both sides to create a security cushion in the conflict zone.

The G7 is a European Commission of leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
