(Como Ministra de Finanza de Ukrania, Jarensko conoció como operan las sociedades donde abundan los polïticos corruptos y oligarcas que se lucran con alianzas tipo APP en que se socializa el riesgo y se privatiza la riqueza.Su jefe Poroshenko, ex-presidente de Ucrania, era un billonario corrupto que intentó reformar a Ucrania sin éxito.)

How Ukraine’s Finance Chief Got Rich

Exclusive: Ukraine’s Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko collected at least $1.77 million in bonuses from a U.S.-taxpayer-funded investment project that she ran even as it was losing money, a sign that her image as a paragon of public-interest “reform” may not be all that it’s cracked up to be, reports Robert Parry.

Before becoming Ukraine’s Finance Minister last December, Natalie Jaresko collected $1.77 million in bonuses from a U.S.-taxpayer-financed investment fund where her annual compensation was supposed to be limited to $150,000, according to financial documents filed with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service this year.
The near 12-fold discrepancy between the compensation ceiling and Jaresko’s bonuses, paid in 2013, was justified in the IRS filing from the Jaresko-led Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF) by drawing a distinction between getting paid directly from the $150 million U.S. government grant that created the fund and the money from the fund’s “investment sales proceeds,” which were treated as fair game for extracting bonuses far beyond the prescribed compensation level.

KYIV, Ukraine - The United States today reaffirmed its strong commitment to the people of Ukraine by signing a $1 billion sovereign loan guarantee agreement with the Government of Ukraine. The guarantee will help the Government of Ukraine continue to institute reforms that tackle corruption, improve the business climate, put the economy on a sustainable path to growth, and make government more responsive to the people.
"The $1 billion loan guarantee will help the Government of Ukraine to carry out its ambitious economic reform agenda," said USAID Acting Administrator Alfonso Lenhardt. "The guarantee sends a strong signal of U.S. support for Ukraine in achieving its reform goals and fulfilling the Ukrainian people's aspirations for a prosperous and democratic future."
The U.S. loan guarantee is part of a comprehensive international financial package, involving both official and private sectors, designed to support Ukraine as it puts in place a reform program. When issued, the U.S. loan guarantee will provide the Government of Ukraine with access to affordable financing from international capital markets, enabling the Government of Ukraine to provide critical services and protect the most vulnerable Ukrainians from the impact of necessary economic adjustments as it implements key reforms.
Ukraine Minister of Finance Natalie Jaresko, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Ukraine Mission Director E. Jed Barton participated in the signing ceremony in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The United States provided Ukraine with a $ 1 billion loan guarantee in May 2014.  If Ukraine continues making concrete progress on its economic reform agenda and conditions warrant, the Administration has indicated it would be willing, working with Congress, to consider providing up to an additional $1 billion loan guarantee in late 2015, for a total potential contribution of up to $2 billion in guarantees in 2015.
