LONDON, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Ukraine's government has heavy
external financing needs in the coming 18 months, raising
concerns over how it will pay gas import bills and maturing

conditions that would be attached to an IMF loan as it faces
elections in early 2015. 
    Following is a table detailing the Ukrainian government's
gross external financing requirements:
