    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is a deciding factor in aiding Ukraine. For a number of reasons, Congress is reluctant to support quota reform which would double the IMF's resources, give Ukraine access to a larger funding pool, and greatly strengthen the United States' ability to lead in the Ukraine crisis.
