“The rush and speculations were created by banks that have spare
funds and can buy huge amounts of currency – they can hire so-called
mercenary experts, media, and create a hysteria and a rush, thus,
forcing ordinary people to buy dollars they don’t need,” the premier
said in Donetsk on Friday, Sept. 7.
The head of the government asked the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) to tackle the problem.
“There is a question – don’t the government and the National Bank
have enough instruments to punish those who mix up their personal
interests with state interests? We have enough of them! That’s why we
are asking the National Bank to use them in the current situation,”
