It is specified that the negative influence of pandemic on the Ukrainian economy will not be long-term but it will be powerful. The quarantine measures have decreased the business, consumption and employment of the population.

“The reduction of global demand also restricts the export possibilities of the country. According to our estimations, the influence of these factors on the economy will sizeable impact the second quarter of 2020. The gradual termination of quarantine restrictions will result in the restoration of the Ukrainian economy in the second half of 2020,” the National Bank of Ukraine stated.
