KIEV (Reuters) - Oleksiy Honcharuk, the man nominated to become Ukraine’s next prime minister, said on Thursday his government would start talks with the International Monetary Fund over a new program in several weeks time.

The IMF helped the economy recover from a sharp recession and currency crash following the outbreak of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. A new IMF deal could replace an existing $3.9 billion standby aid agreement.
