It is noted that business expects a reduction in the production volume of goods and services in Ukraine because of the war and is pessimistic about the level of their enterprises’ business activity. In addition, in the next 12 months, respondents predict an increase in inflation and a devaluation of the national currency. The index’s decrease occurred due to the deterioration of assessments for all components of the index.
