Ukraine Readies for Aid

KIEV () -- Ukraine is on the verge of signing an economic stabilization program with the International Monetary Fund which could unlock a major aid package, officials said Wednesday.

President Leonid Kuchma and other top government figures have endorsed the program, which if approved will allow Ukraine to secure its first IMF loan of at least $700 million.
