Last week, the demand for foreign currency from customers increased significantly in the interbank market.
This was announced by a member of the Council of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) Bohdan Danylyshyn on Facebook.
He explained that the increase in demand against the background of a reduction in its supply led to a 5-fold increase in net demand for foreign currency compared to the week before last.
"This, in turn, necessitated an increase in the NBU's net sale of foreign currency in order to balance the market to USD 873 million (compared to USD 302 million a week earlier). In total, since the beginning of the year, the net sale of foreign currency by the National Bank amounted to almost 18 billion US dollars," he said in a statement.
He noted that Ukraine's international reserves, which decreased by 3.2% in August, as of September 1 were and remain sufficient both to finance import needs and to service Ukraine's international and domestic debt obligations.
