Country Outlook

Ukraine’s economy plummeted last year, falling at the fastest pace in five years. The drastic deterioration was driven by the military conflict in the east of the country that has pushed Ukraine into an economic crisis characterized by skyrocketing inflation and double-digit contractions in industrial production.

Ukrainian government officials and pro-Russia separatist rebels met for the first time since the signing of the latest peace agreement on 6 May in an attempt to salvage the shaky deal. The IMF returned to Ukraine on 12 May to begin the first review of the USD 17.5 billion bailout that was approved on 11 March.

Over the next weeks, the IMF will evaluate the country’s progress on a number of reforms that are necessary to unlock the next tranche of funds.
