The NBU reported that the sum of the third tranche makes 716 110 000 of Special Drawing Rights (SDR), or about 1 billion dollars in equivalent. Ukraine will receive the greater of it in SDR, another part - in international currencies.
This tranche will be directed at increasing the international reserves of the National Bank.
The decision to allocate the tranche for Ukraine was taken on September 14. The decision of the Executive Board of the IMF on the allocation of $ 1 billion was adopted with the exceptions to the general rules, taking into account the current economic situation in the country.
