Abstract "The interest of the European public will soon turn again to Ukraine, where presidential elections are scheduled to take place in January 2010. The International Monetary Fund supported Ukraine during the global financial crisis, averting a state bankruptcy with billions in credit. The IMF also effectively paid Ukraine's debt to Russia for natural gas. This defused the conflict with Russia, but came at the cost of deep Ukrainian financial dependence on the West. Will Russia and the EU continue to compete for Ukraine?" (author's abstract)
