Another lockdown may lead to a reduction in Ukraine’s GDP.

 The Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU), Kyrylo Shevchenko, said that a possible lockdown in Ukraine, depending on the format and severity of quarantine restrictions, may lead to a 0.4%-0.6% reduction in GDP. “Although business processes are returning offline and vaccination rates are growing, the risks of introducing a new lockdown due to the spread of new strains of the virus remain significant,” reported ukrinform.
