New acting head of National Bank of Ukraine

19:32, 10 May 2017

Yakiv Smoliy chaired Ukraine’s National Bank instead of Valeriya Gontareva who resigned on her own request last month.

Because the Parliament still has not confirmed her resignation and the President did not even approve her resignation letter, Smoliy will be serving as the Acting Head of Ukraine’s leading financial institution.

Commenting on her resignation, Gontareva said it was not a political move, but her personal decision.
