00.01 – Georgieva: strong uncertainty, risk of Kiev’s debt becoming unsustainable
“The Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began more than seven months ago, has caused massive loss of life, massive population displacements and significant destruction of infrastructure and housing. The impact on economic activity has been enormous: real GDP has contracted severely, inflation has risen sharply, trade has been severely disrupted and the budget deficit has increased to unprecedented levels. ‘ Kristalina Georgieva, director general of the International Monetary Fund, remembers this after the decision of the Governing Council which authorized a loan of 1.3 billion dollars in Kiev. “Ukraine – she adds – must face risks and uncertainties related to the dangerous security situation, the ability to implement policies and external developments”. In this context, for Georgieva “the very high uncertainty makes it difficult, at the moment, to assess with sufficient precision what would be necessary to ensure the sustainability of the Ukrainian debt, but the probability balance suggests that there are greater risks that the debt becomes unsustainable “. «In conjunction with Ukraine’s continued commitment to economic, fiscal and reforms governanceas well as with the strong commitment of all other stakeholders, including international financial institutions and the private sector, most of Ukraine’s official bilateral creditors and donors, through relevant executive directors at the Fund – have signaled that they intend to continue to financially support Ukraine to help achieve a balanced growth path and medium-term external profitability »concludes Georgieva.
