On the face of things, the worst is over for Ukraine. A ceasefire seems to be holding in the war that _1_ (put) forces backed by Russia in control of much of the east of the country. The IMF has found a way to _2_ (lie) providing Ukraine with a financial lifeline, side-stepping a _3_ (fight) with Russia that had threatened to _4_ (severe)it. The economy, which has shrivelled by about a fifth since 2013, even grew by 0.7% in the third quarter, relative to the second. Yet the hryvnia, Ukraine’s currency, which has lost 70% of its _5_ (fine) over the past two years, is sliding again; government-bond yields are rising. Politicians in Kiev are busier _6_ (valuing) than fixing the country’s problems. There is a risk that the hugely unpopular government may collapse, possibly paving the way for a resurgence of pro-Russian parties. For all the improvement in Ukraine’s circumstances, the country’s prospects remain horribly uncertain.

The government’s finances also look much more healthy. That is largely thanks to Ukraine’s creditors. In August most of them agreed to a restructuring that _1_ (put off) 20% off its foreign debt. That paved the way for an IMF _2_ (elude). It has lent $11 billion to Ukraine since the beginning of 2014, and plans to lend another $11 billion by 2019. To that end, it changed one of its _3_(hats) this month, freeing it to lend to a country that has _4_ (faulted) on a sovereign lender. That _5_(strifle) was aimed at Russia, which lent $3 billion to Ukraine in 2013 and rejected the August deal. Ukraine will default on the Russian loan on December 20th. A lengthy court battle looms, but will no longer _6_(danger) the IMF’s aid.
