In During an interview in Davos, Javorchyk said that the economic situation in Ukraine was difficult, despite GDP growth of 5% last year.

“The big risk is that if the money doesn’t come from abroad, The government (of Ukraine – ed.) may have to resort to the “printing press”. The government has done a very good job of ensuring macroeconomic stability. We need to support Ukraine not only militarily, but also because of budgetary support,” she noted.
