Ukraine: More on Political Chaos and the Economy

Moscow Rules praises Mykhaylo Petechuk's text on Ukraine's economic situation posted on Mmd Russia Blog. Petechuk writes: “But we are skeptical about the real impact the IMF can have on three people who are competing with each other for the position of President in upcoming Presidential elections and a political class which is utterly self-obsessed. There is, therefore, every chance that Ukraine will bungle this tight window of opportunity the IMF offers and bring down upon itself total economic chaos, Russia 1998-style. We put this risk at 35% and rising every day.”
