The breakdown of a frail ceasefire with rebels in the country’s east, the failure to reschedule its debt with private lenders, or domestic political issues could all undermine the plan even as it starts, the IMF warned. “The program faces exceptionally high risks,” the IMF said in an extensive analysis of the contracting Ukraine economy and the prospects of the program. “There are manifold risks that could adversely affect Ukraine’s capacity to repay the Fund, and strict adherence to the program will be critical,” it said.
