KYIV (Reuters) - Ukraine’s new central bank governor, Kyrylo Shevchenko, said on Monday he did not expect there to be delays in Ukraine receiving loans from the International Monetary Fund under a new $5 billion deal.

Shevchenko also told reporters the central bank would not allow uncontrolled inflation. He said the central bank would maintain its existing policy on having a floating exchange rate, and on PrivatBank, Ukraine’s largest lender, which was nationalised in 2016.
