Podcast: Window on the East - Wither Ukraine in 2021?

Evghenia Sleptsova, senior economist for Russia & CIS at Oxford Economics joins Ben Aris, editor-in-chief, Business News Europe and Elina Ribakova, deputy chief economist of the Institute of International Finance (IIF) to discuss Ukraine's economic health and the prospects for getting through another year ahead.
