The economic recession continues on account of depressed global steel markets, persistent currency over-valuation, growth slowdown in the neighbouring Russia and the newly imposed politically motivated Russian trade sanctions. The latest government decision to abstain from signing the Association Agreement (including a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement) with the EU should result in Russian trade sanctions being lifted and thus improve Ukraine's economic situation in the short term. In the longer run however economic restructuring and modernization will be more difficult, resulting in lower growth prospects.
