In April 2020, the volume of state reserves of Ukraine grew by 800 million U.S. dollars. That's 3.1 percent more than last month's figure, National Bank says in a statement.

As of May 1, Ukraine's international currency reserves make 25.7 billion U.S. dollars.

The National Bank (NBU) explained that there are three factors for such growth: the drop in currency demand by businesses on the interbanking market, government operations to pay the state debts in currency, as well as re-evaluation of financial tools.
