By Christian Lowe and Marcin Goettig WARSAW (Reuters) – World leaders marking 25 years since Poland began its transformation into a free-market democracy had a message this month for neighbouring Ukraine: you too could follow the same path to prosperity. Fundamentals of the two economies suggest Ukraine can aspire to match the progress Poland has made since communism fell. Back in 1990, shortly before Ukraine split from the crumbling Soviet Union, it had a gross domestic product per head of population of $6,806 while the figure for Poland was only $5,976. “Ukraine has a huge potential for development,” said Pawel Borys, director for strategy and investment at PKO BP, Poland’s biggest bank.
