In February, Fitch Ratings agency affirmed Ukraine's long-term foreign-currency issuer default rating (IDR) at "B" with a stable outlook.
"Ukraine's 'B' IDRs reflect its track record of multilateral support and a credible macroeconomic policy framework that has underpinned a relatively high degree of resilience to the coronavirus shock. Ukraine's human development indicators compare favorably with the peer group, it has a net external creditor position of close to 13% of GDP, and general government debt is somewhat lower than the 'B' median," the message said.
At the same time, it is noted that against the background of these factors, corporate governance indicators remain weak, the degree of legislative and judicial risk for the implementation of policies is high, and external liquidity, in comparison with the large requirements for servicing sovereign external debt, is at a low level.
