House prices have been stabilizing in Ukraine as the hryvnia has steadied, and as the economy has begun to recover - and though the trend is still down, the decline has been more gradual recently. House prices fell 1.67% quarter-on-quarter in Q2 2017.
Ukraine's economy grew by 2.3% last year, after declines of 9.8% in 2015, 6.6% in 2014 and 0.03% in 2013.
