"With the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and hostile actions against the Ukrainian people, the World Bank Group immediately stopped all its programs in Russia and Belarus", - RIA Novosti quotes a statement from the WB.
Before that, the World Bank decided to provide Ukraine with financial assistance in the amount of $3 billion. The International Monetary Fund is studying Kyiv's request for emergency funding.
It's worth reminding: on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a military special operation in Ukraine. This was followed by tough sanctions against Russia by Western countries, which require the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops.
