The rating agency cited the easing of Ukraine’s near-term funding challenges and the safeguards afforded to recent improvements in its external vulnerability, as a result of a new financing program with the International Monetary Fund, as the main driver behind the upgrade on June 12.

Standard & Poor’s and Fitch both have their credit rating for Ukraine at "B" with a stable outlook, Trading Economics notes.
