– Arbuzov’s mother Valentina Arbuzova, an experienced banker, is the chief executive of a private bank owned by Yanukovich’s son, Oleksandr Yanukovich.

– Under Arbuzov, the central bank has continued the policy of maintaining hryvnia exchange rate stability, burning some of its reserves to support the currency when it came under pressure.
