The international reserves of Ukraine increased by 5,8% ($1.27 million) in July up to $21.8 million, as the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) reported.

The regulator notes that the growth took place due to the favorable situation at the currency market, operation of the government on management of the state debt and reassessment of the financial tools.
