Ukraine’s international reserves amount to $27B.
Ukraine’s international reserves as of April 22 amounted to about $27B, and now are at the same level as at the beginning of the war, said the Chairman of the National Bank of Ukraine, Kyrylo Shevchenko. Earlier, the NBU reported that Ukraine’s international reserves as of April 1, 2022, amounted to $28.1B, which is 2% more than at the beginning of March ($27.5B), but by mid-April, they fell to $27.4B. Shevchenko noted that most market operations are now carried out with the participation of the NBU due to the forced introduction of restrictions, and Ukraine spends its reserves mainly on critical imports. The chairman of the NBU added, “we keep servicing public debt, which Ukraine has not stopped and does not plan to stop servicing.”
