“Still, there are risks, military ones. It is possible that international assistance will come at the wrong time, and the hryvnia will have to be printed, although the NBU promised not to print it,” the expert noted. “We are counting on the best, but preparing for the worst.”
At the same time, he also named the factors that will influence the course in one way or another throughout the year: stable provision of financial assistance; a sufficient amount of gold and foreign exchange reserves of Ukraine, as well as the restoration of exports.
