External Debt in Ukraine

Ukraine External Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Ukraine - External Debt

A second estimate confirmed that the economy contracted in the first quarter for the first time in over three years. Fixed investment plummeted, hurt by bleak economic prospects and a high share of unprofitable companies, while public spending also tumbled amid poor government finances. Moreover, the sharp global downturn due to the coronavirus pandemic dented exports. Turning to the second quarter, available data points to a worsening recession as the brunt of restrictions to contain the virus began to kick in: In May, industrial production plunged for the third consecutive month and retail sales growth fell to an over three-year low. Meanwhile, on 9 July, the IMF approved a USD 5 billion loan deal for Ukraine and the country received an immediate release of USD 2.1 billion, a much-needed economic lifeline for the government. However, the recent departure of Central Bank Governor Yakiv Smolii bodes poorly for continued creditor-demanded reforms.
