KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine has received a first tranche worth about $3.2 billion (1.9 billion pounds) from a $17 billion two-year aid programme from the International Monetary Fund, the central bank said on Wednesday.
The bank said the first tranche was received on Tuesday. More than $1 billion went to the bank's foreign currency reserves and the rest to the state budget, a spokesman said.
