Ukraine’s currency market was balanced last month as public demand for dollars declined, the central bank said.
Dollar-demand by households was a quarter of what it was in March last year, Olena Shcherbakova, who heads the Natsionalnyi Bank Ukrainy’s monetary policy department, said today in a statement on the bank’s website. There were no dollar sales to support the hryvnia, she added.
“The market is quiet, participation of the central bank is nearing zero,” Shcherbakova said.
