The European Commission will officially hand over €1.1 billion this week to far right coup leaders in Kiev that removed the elected government with street violence.
US secretary of state John Kerry also said on a visit to Kiev this week that Washington will add $1 billion into the pot to shore up fascist rule.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is expected to contribute as well, amid reports the total fund will add up to around €4 billion.
EU and IMF officials are in Kiev this week to demand massive structural adjustment including mass privatisation in return for €25 billion over the next two years.
Pro-EU and homophobic ‘Prime Minister’ Arseniy Yatseniuk has said his regime would “meet all IMF conditions” attached to a bailout, including the privatisation of Ukraine’s strategic oil and gas industry.
Ukraine’s EU ambassador also announced plans to increase domestic gas prices – a key sticking point on former IMF conditions in its talks with ousted leader Viktor Yanukovych last year.
