By Anna Yukhananov WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Ukraine may need as much as $19 billion in additional funds from donors if its conflict with pro-Russian separatists continues during 2015, the International Monetary Fund warned on Tuesday. Nevertheless, it said the money planned under the program is largely sufficient for now as long as the fighting between the government in Kiev and the rebels in the eastern part of the country subsides in the "coming months." The momentum in the five-month war shifted last week decisively in favor of the rebels, who are now advancing on a major port as they seek to throw off rule from Kiev. Western countries accuse Moscow of sending troops into Ukraine, a charge Russia denies. Kiev will now face a $3.5 billion funding shortfall for this year and next due to the fighting, but the IMF said the government should be able to cover most of it with planned debt issues and an expected $900 million in further donor support.
