“Today Ukraine offers services of 54 payment systems: two of them - of the central bank, the other are established by banking and non-banking organizations, residents and non-residents of Ukraine. Payment systems in Ukraine differ significantly by the organizational structure, type of operations performed, the process for initiation of translation market share. National Bank of Ukraine, as a regulator of this complex and dynamic market, seeks to establish such rules of the game, which will stimulate innovation, support competition in the interests of the users of payment systems, individuals and legal entities and the state as a whole,” stated Olena Makhaeva.

"The purpose of this activity is to increase the reliability and efficiency of payment systems, the reduction of systemic risk," summarized Mahaeva.
