The European Union's foreign policy chief says the EU will extend a 1 billion-euro ($1.2 billion) loan to struggling Ukraine.
Federica Mogherini, who was visiting the capital Kyiv on Monday, told reporters the loan should "support Ukraine's economic stability and structural reforms."
Ukraine is trying to improve its economy after years of inefficiency and corruption under the previous president, Viktor Yanukovych, and has been hit hard by the separatist conflict in the east.
She also urged the government to comply with 2015 peace accords that called for a truce between government forces and Russia-backed separatists.
