The game of Ukraine is only as good as its rules
According to the International property rights index, Ukraine is number 127 out of 129 countries when it comes to the protection of private property. By adopting illusionary reforms of the court system and regulatory policy, the authorities become no more capable of establishing transparent and unified rules for the economic and political arenas.
As a result, the country is losing the confidence of foreign business. Foreign direct investment in Ukraine in the first quarter of 2011 was only $894.3 million.
