The outflow of deposits in Ukraine has reached UAH 104 bn, informed Director of the NBU General Monetary Policy Department Olena Shcherbakova at a press conference in Kyiv.

«Starting from January 21, the outflow of deposits has amounted to UAH 104 bn, which is 30% of the banking system. Outflow of dollar deposits accounted for US $6.5 bn, while hryvnia deposits accounted for the rest,» she said.

«The summer period has made us more confident. In June-July, we came to the conclusion that we would see stabilization and the outflow would stop. We expected this in August. Now it is the middle of September, but the outflow hasn’t stopped,» specified Shcherbakova.

Earlier NBU Governor Valeriya Hontareva informed that the outflow of deposits from the banks amounted to UAH 6.4 bn in September 2014.

As a reminder, the NBU has extended the restrictions on returning of depositsby issuing a decree No. 540 on August 29 on implementation of the mechanisms of the monetary policy and foreign exchange market of Ukraine.
