The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) will soon consider some relaxations regarding foreign exchange operations, said the head of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) Kyrylo Shevchenko.
“I think that in the near future we will consider some concessions regarding foreign exchange transactions. In principle, we are already doing them,” he said in an interview with Economic Truth.
The head of the NBU added that today the difference between the official rate and the rate on the black market has begun to narrow quite significantly compared to what it was at the beginning of the war.
“If at the beginning of the war we saw in exchangers that the exchange rate fluctuated around UAH 40/$, today the average cash market rate is 31.63-32.05 UAH/$. This is not a very wide spread and this makes us happy”, he pointed out.
As reported, on February 24, the National Bank suspended the work of the foreign exchange market of Ukraine, except for the sale of foreign currency, and fixed the rate at the level of February 24.
