The war has caused Ukraine significant economic and humanitarian losses. Economic activity has practically ceased in those regions where military operations are under way, and more than a quarter of the population has been displaced. We expect a gradual recovery of Ukraine’s economy in 2023, but there is practically no chance of the recovery being even remotely V-shaped. GDP growth will accelerate in 2024, provided financial support is forthcoming from the West in the shape of a Marshall Plan-type reconstruction fund.
