According to operational data of the State Treasury Service, in January 2023, the general fund of the state budget received UAH 104.4 billion, in particular:
- 5.6 billion rent for subsoil use;
- 2 billion in import and export duties;
- 1.2 billion in corporate income tax.
In addition, UAH 36.6 billion of international grant aid was received in January.
UAH 118.7 billion (€3 billion) was raised from external sources due to the receipt of a tranche of EU macro-financial assistance.

As GMK Center reported earlier, the National Bank of Ukraine worsened the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth forecast in 2023 from 4% to 0.3% in the previous forecast. The worsening of expectations is primarily related to the consequences of energy terror on the part of the Russian Federation, as well as a revision of the assumption regarding the duration of security risks’ preservation. As a result of the latter, the full unblocking of ports is expected to be delayed, which will hold back the potential for export recovery.
