Recall

In February, the head of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine committee on finance, tax and customs policy, Daniil Getmantsev, said that deposits citizens in hryvnia allegedly decreased by 51.3 billion hryvnia in January.

According to Getmantsev, such a reduction could have been caused by “a certain negative effect” associated with the norms of the bill on mobilization.

However, Deputy Managing Director of the Deposit Guarantee Fund Olga Bilay stated that the slight outflow of deposits is not a consequence of possible legislative changes, but a traditional seasonal phenomenon.

In addition, the head of the NBU Andrey Pyshny said that the messages of Russian propaganda and Ukrainian speakers about the alleged outflow of Ukrainians' funds from hryvnia bank accounts due to the mobilization bill do not correspond to reality.
