The Ukrainian reforms of 2014 led to total degradation

Summary of Disinformation

In Ukraine, the regime changed in 2014. What happened in return? The degradation of the economy and the degradation of all basic life indicators. Except one: citizens of Ukraine have the opportunity to flee their country without visas.

Disproof

The recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Ukraine, its economy, and how it was ruined after 2014.

It's not the reforms of 2014, but the annexation of Crimea in March 2014, the war in Donbas, which started in April 2014, and the loss of Ukraine's largest trading partner, Russia, resulting in Ukraine's economy shrinking by 6,8% in 2014.

However, according to the International Monetary Fund, the growth rate of Ukraine's gross domestic product has been around 3 percent a year for the last three years, and the IMF predicts a similar rate even for the long term.
