the Demand of exchangers, where the population is on the threshold of vacations actively buying foreign currency. However, in the event of a further growth rate may start panic buying the currency, especially against the background of talk about the default.

  • the Next payment of VAT refunds to exporters.


the national Bank sold $ 10 million at the rate of 26,69 UAH/$, which confirms the willingness to continue to support the exchange rate stable.


Experts had expected a decline rate closer to the fall, in the period of debt repayment on loans and bonds. According to the Chairman of the Board of the national Bank. Danylyshyn, these factors will affect the currency market before the end of the year.


In may-December, Ukraine has to repay $ 3.5 billion of external debt and 2.8 billion dollars in government bonds in foreign currency. Peak will be in may and September, when you will need to pay for $1.7 billion.


In the period may-July for foreign bonds will have to pay $ 1.7 billion. Thus the exchange rate will push short-term government bonds in local currency that non-residents bought in February-April.

Most of the funds received from redemption of government bonds in national currency in July-September, will be translated to the currency and displayed abroad - said. Danylyshyn.
