Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine highlights that economic downturn, contributed to limiting gross domestic product  growth rate – 16.3%. The main explication of such a downturn, voiced by the Ministry, seems to be quite obvious - baffling geopolitical situation.

Hryvnia devaluation and inflation remain downside risks in the economic environment, states the Ministry, highlighting concerns over a quite sharp decline in production. For example, the level of agricultural production decreased by 9.3%, industry production dropped to 20.5%, exports fell by 35.4%.

As was stated before, Ukraine expected budget deficit at 4.2 percent of GDP in 2015. In 2016, the financial experts are looking forward to its decline to 3.7% of GDP.
