   Introduction Ukraine
   --------------------
                            Background: Richly endowed in natural resources,
                                        Ukraine has been fought over and
                                        subjugated for centuries; its 20th-
                                        century struggle for liberty is not
                                        yet complete. A short-lived
                                        independence from Russia (1917-1920)
                                        was followed by brutal Soviet rule
                                        that engineered two artificial
                                        famines (1921-22 and 1932-33) in
                                        which over 8 million died, and World
                                        War II, in which German and Soviet
                                        armies were responsible for some 7
                                        million more deaths. Although
                                        independence was attained in 1991
                                        with the dissolution of the USSR,
                                        true freedom remains elusive as many
                                        of the former Soviet elite remain
                                        entrenched, stalling efforts at
                                        economic reform, privatization, and
                                        civil liberties.

                                        Likewise, its diversified heavy
                                        industry supplied the unique
                                        equipment (for example, large
                                        diameter pipes) and raw materials to
                                        industrial and mining sites
                                        (vertical drilling apparatus) in
                                        other regions of the former USSR.
                                        Ukraine depends on imports of
                                        energy, especially natural gas, to
                                        meet some 85% of its annual energy
                                        requirements. Shortly after
                                        independence in late 1991, the
                                        Ukrainian Government liberalized
                                        most prices and erected a legal
                                        framework for privatization, but
                                        widespread resistance to reform
                                        within the government and the
                                        legislature soon stalled reform
                                        efforts and led to some
                                        backtracking. Output by 1999 had
                                        fallen to less than 40% the 1991
                                        level. Loose monetary policies
                                        pushed inflation to
                                        hyperinflationary levels in late
                                        1993. Ukraine's dependence on Russia
                                        for energy supplies and the lack of
                                        significant structural reform have
                                        made the Ukrainian economy
                                        vulnerable to external shocks. Now
                                        in his second term, President KUCHMA
                                        has pledged to reduce the number of
                                        government agencies, streamline the
                                        regulatory process, create a legal
                                        environment to encourage
                                        entrepreneurs, and enact a
                                        comprehensive tax overhaul. Reforms
                                        in the more politically sensitive
                                        areas of structural reform and land
                                        privatization are still lagging.
                                        Outside institutions - particularly
                                        the IMF - have encouraged Ukraine to
                                        quicken the pace and scope of
                                        reforms and have threatened to
                                        withdraw financial support. GDP in
                                        2000 showed strong export-based
                                        growth of 6% - the first growth
                                        since independence - and industrial
                                        production grew 12.9%. The economy
                                        continued to expand in 2001 as real
                                        GDP rose 9% and industrial output
                                        grew by over 14%. Growth was
                                        undergirded by strong domestic
                                        demand and growing consumer and
                                        investor confidence.
