Kubiv received 310 votes after Igor Sorkin, the former head of the NBU, resigned.
From the rostrum of parliament, Kubiv said: “Thank you, thank you colleagues. I want to say that this post is not a reward. I take great responsibility for the welfare of the country’s banking system. I promise a huge job, transparency of the NBU’s work for us today to say that Ukraine is a great market, a platform for investments. Ukrainians are fair people. One could deposit money with the banks.”
Kubiv then left the session hall and went to the National Bank of Ukraine.
