Crisis in Ukrainian agriculture [RUS]
The Ukrainian agricultural sector, one of the main sectors of the economy capable of filling the country's budget with money, is entering a deep crisis. The sector is not only experiencing difficulties caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but also seems to be rapidly losing trading partners and markets.

National Reconstruction Plan of Ukraine [RUS]
Hundreds of thousands of homes across the country have been damaged or completely destroyed as a result of the fighting. The draft National Reconstruction Plan of Ukraine, which the government has developed together with experts, envisages not only reconstruction and construction, but also the modernisation of housing. However, Ukrainian builders will definitely not start mass construction of modernized houses in the near future.

Price rises in 2023 [RUS]
Ukraine is preparing for the summer season and fears another price increase. In autumn 2022, the government imposed a moratorium on utility tariffs increases during 2023. However, it does not apply to all services. The country will not be able to avoid the growth of tariffs this year. Moreover, experts do not expect inflation in Ukraine to slow substantially in 2023. All Ukrainians will feel the effects. Regardless of financial difficulties and rising prices, Ukrainians are getting ready to celebrate Easter. In the article you will find some economic data related to the celebration of this holiday in Ukraine.

Ukrainian Economy after the year of war [RUS]
UN experts say that the blocking of ports and damage to steel mills has had an extremely negative impact on the country's economy. Despite this, the decline of the Ukrainian economy was less than expected; the support of Western countries - primarily financial support - played a role. Ukraine's financial system has been preserved as such, banks have worked almost continuously and there has been no collapse of the hryvnia and no hyperinflation. Now the country needs to focus on a few key aspects: improving business security, expanding logistics routes, attracting foreign investment and working together with foreign partners.

Setting the price cap on Russian oil is another step in the long-term strategy of Western countries [CZ]
Last December, the G7 group of the world's most developed countries agreed to cap the price of Russian oil. It set the price of a barrel at USD 60. The main aim of this price cap is to weaken Moscow's ability to finance the war in Ukraine. However, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has criticised the G7 decision and considers it insufficient.

This year’s Ukraine mostly exported commodities of Ukraine in this year were corn (21.9 million tons worth $5.3 billion), wheat (9.6 million tons worth $2.3 billion) and sunflower oil (3.9 million tons worth $5 billion). Of course, this is less than in the same period of the pre-war 2021 - by 16.7% in volumes, and by almost 14% in value. At the end of the year, the Ukraine ‘s agricultural sector of Ukraine also faced an unexpected problem - the impact of anti-Russian Western sanctions.

The ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war conflict is having a negative impact on the whole world. Many countries around the world have condemned Putin's actions and imposed various sanctions on the country. The biggest challenge, especially for Europe, will be to cut off its energy dependence on Russia.

The world is facing grain shortages due to the armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The cost of oilseeds and fertilisers is also increasing, which has a negative impact on food price rises and high inflation. Millions of people on the planet are thus threatened by famine, especially poor developing countries.

More than a hundred days have passed since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Its negative impact is felt almost all over the world. "This is an economic disaster," World Bank President David Malpass told the BBC. The world is thus in a state of great uncertainty regarding the future. However, according to Western intelligence, Russia is running out of troops and equipment. The war could end by the end of the year, according to optimistic forecasts.

The United States ban Russian oil imports, Europe plans similar restrictions [CZ]
The invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine was a sharp wake-up call for the West, after which some countries decided to ban or restrict imports of Russian raw materials. The Russian Federation is one of the world's largest exporters of oil and natural gas. Trade in raw materials plays a crucial role in the Russian economy. However, only countries that are not fully dependent on Russian fossil fuels (the United States) could afford an embargo on them. Europe is currently planning similar measures. Regarding the EU countries, the process of moving away from Russian resources take almost a decade.

Ukraine is going to legalize gambling. The administration of President Zelensky expects this step to bring another 9 billion hryvnias to the state budget. However, the Ukrainian Parliament refused to approve the relevant bill due to a strong lobby of sellers of state lotteries in the first attempt. They appear to be the primary recipients of benefits from the “gray” gambling industry. Parliamentary opposition is against as well.

Land reform is one of the most important goals proclaimed by Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky. If you consider how strongly and consistently government promotes idea of free sale of local land, it is clearly one of the key projects and thus causing a lot of controversies and protests. Free land market should become a part of the so-called big privatization and Kiev intends to launch its first stage in spring 2020.
