The exchange rate of the hryvnia to the U.S. dollar will be stable at least until the end of the year. Such a forecast was made by experts. According to President of the Center for Anti-Crisis Studies Yaroslav Zhalilo, the problems that arise in servicing public debt do not put pressure on the exchange rate, because they are resolved without a significant influence on the foreign exchange market.
In general, financiers agreed that the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) would manage to keep the hryvnia exchange rate by the end of the year. However, some experts did not rule out the weakening of the national currency by 5-10% by the end of the year. The reason is a reduction in the reserves of the National Bank and a difficult borrowing market, both internal and external. Therefore, the NBU will most likely devalue the hryvnia in order to ease pressure.
