Ukraine is the largest country in Europe and its economy, bearing heavy burden of a Soviet-type economic planning, has managed to undergo fundamental economic transformations as well as integrate democratic values and principles into its social and economic development. However, the full-scale war of Russia against Ukraine essentially stalled its economic growth, caused enormous infrastructural destructions, disrupted previously existing supply chains on international markets to which Ukraine had been exporting. These and related issues challenging not only in terms of Ukraine’s economic development but also overall regional and global economic security including the prospects of post-war rebuilding will be discussed.
