The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) can impose the exchange restrictions in the case of the cessation of Ukraine, International Monetary Fund (IMF) cooperation. Head of the NBU Yakiv Smoly claimed this as ZN.ua reported.
'When we were asked what are you going to do if there is no program on the cooperation with the IMF, we said that we have a few worked out alternative scenarios and even worked out criteria on which we will implement measures in the case of a particular situation. We do not announce these criteria. It is our inner groundwork', he said.
At the same time, Smoly hopes that the cooperation with the IMF will continue.
'We hope that the cooperation with the Fund will continue and we will not be forces to implement these measures but we openly talk about this: we have the criteria and in the case of their implementation we will be forced to switch to tougher monetary policy and even consider the imposing of the exchange restrictions', he noted.
Earlier the IMF has emphasized the importance of the preserving of the leading role of the Finance Ministry in Ukraine for the forming of the fiscal policy due to the dismissal of Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk.
