The newly approved IMF ‘rescue package’ has averted a balance-of-payments crisis and stabilised the currency following a 50% depreciation. However, the economic recession is likely to reach at least 5% this year due to the IMF-imposed austerity package and the ongoing internal armed conflict. The newly signed 'deep free trade' agreement with the EU – though beneficial in the long term – will require painful short- and medium-term adjustments, potentially inflicting further economic losses.
