In this case, and in the case of the deterioration of access to certain markets, foreign exchange earnings from exports may be reduced. This may affect the dynamics of the hryvnia exchange rate and, consequently, inflation,” say the experts of the NBU.
Risk is the weakening of investor interest in developing countries and capital outflow from these countries.

A strengthening external military aggression can jeopardize not only the potential achievements but also the achievements of past years”, – the document says.
