The national Bank intervened in the foreign exchange market in order to replenish international reserves and to smooth out excessive fluctuations in the market. At the end of the month the positive balance of NBU operations on the currency market amounted to almost 300 million dollars.
The NBU noted that in the global financial markets, the situation for countries with rezvushkina markets, with the exception of the last decade of the month remained favorable thanks to the easing of monetary policy by leading Central banks.
