President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has submitted a resolution on the removal of Yakiv Smoliy from the position of the Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine to the Verkhovna Rada. The relevant resolution was published on the parliament's website.
The text of the draft resolution has not been published yet.
The list of initiators includes: President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy Danylo Hetmantsev, Yuriy Aristov - Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Budget, Anastasia Radina - Chairman of the Anti-Corruption Committee.
As we reported earlier, the ambassadors of the G7 states have expressed their concern following Smoliy's resignation.
“An independent National Bank is a foundational achievement for Ukraine that has reduced corruption, driven growth & rescued a failed banking sector. To undermine this crucial institution would be a big step back and jeopardize the credibility of and support for Ukraine‘s reforms,” the message reads.
