The Head of the National Bank of Ukraine: "We will ensure the stability of the banking system and the national currency" (Statement)
"Today, despite the events that have been occuring lately in the country, I, as the Head of the National Bank of Ukraine, responsibly assure: banks of Ukraine have repeatedly demonstrated their ability to work under any conditions. The tightly-knit team of the National Bank of Ukraine and the banking system has always been the key to the economic success of the country", - the head of the National Bank of Ukraine Igor Sorkin said.
Despite the difficult political situation in the country, the National Bank has enough means to ensure the stability of the banking system and the national currency, and has not taken any restrictive measures in the money and foreign exchange markets. Igor Sorkin also said that the National Bank, if necessary, is ready to increase their participation in all segments of the money market to ensure stability and prevent all risks. An extensive territorial system of the National Bank allows to do it.
The Head of the National Bank urged citizens to be confident in the banking system and the safety of their savings. "I am sure that today, there is no one in Ukrainian society who would be interested in destabilizing the economic situation. For its part, the National Bank as the regulator of the banking market has been and will always remain on guard of the interests of Ukraine's economy and its citizens" - Igor Sorkin said
