Ukraine announced the growth of its international reserves


The size of the international reserves of the National Bank of Ukraine has grown, reaching $ 25,7 billion. Data presented on May 1.


This was announced today by the press service of the National Bank.

In April, the growth of foreign exchange reserves amounted to 771 million dollars.

The regulator believes that one of the main reasons for this growth was the weakening in April of the rush demand for foreign currency from the Ukrainian business, which was especially acute in March. This allowed the National Bank of Ukraine to again begin to build up international reserves.

Last month, the Ukrainian authorities allocated $ 304 million to service and repay the public debt. Part of these expenses was offset by the sale of domestic government loan bonds worth more than $ 164 million.

According to the press service of the National Bank of Ukraine, the accumulated foreign exchange reserves will be enough for current needs and mandatory payments. This amount is able to cover import costs for about 4,5 months.

True, Ukraine will also have to spend a lot this year. For 2020, the country must make "peak" payments on external debts, including the International Monetary Fund. The May tranche alone should amount to $ 5 billion.

        the most liquid of the papers is the toilet, it has been proven repeatedly during several crises.
        other papers wrinkle poorly, wipe even worse, protective tapes can scratch a soft spot - it’s dangerous.

          Well, about 3 times, do not bend. I will surprise you now, but in Germany, France, and the UK, GDP growth is less than in Ukraine. But the standard of living is rapidly falling.

                Doctors Exactly the opposite. "for a race" - one cannot live on a minimum wage (in cities at the level of "regional" capitals "and St. Petersburg and Moscow at least). But in Ukraine - even in Kiev, which is expensive by our standards - it’s difficult, but quite possible (if you don’t have to pay for rental huts of course).

    We know! We have been hanging such noodles since the 90s. But Russia has pulled it out, because
    its resources are unlimited. Countries Ukraine - never existed. Most of the world's population will not find it on the globe. They learned about it only when the Anglo-Saxons organized a bloody coup there to tear it from Russia.
    The strategic plan of Brzezinski, the United States implemented. Only everything turned out the other way around. Russia without Ukraine is alive, and Ukraine without Russia is bent.

        Yes, yes, Lehman Brothers shares. And at times it’s paradoxical that the revaluation of assets has not passed, since 2008, no one wants to take responsibility. Yes, and it’s profitable for the country to give out empty shares as an asset
