IMF says hopes to mobilize as much funding as possible to aid Ukraine

- Canada and Germany have already pledged over $2 billion to a new administered account set up by the International Monetary Fund to help war-torn Ukraine, and other countries have expressed interest, IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice said on Thursday.

Rice declined to give a target for the amount that could be raised in the account, but said the IMF would like it to be "as large as possible," given the huge needs of Ukraine, where thousands of people have been killed since Moscow launched what it calls a "special military operation" on Feb. 24.
