    Uncertainty Hangs Over National Bank of Ukraine

    Uncertainty Hangs Over National Bank of Ukraine

    This week's topic covers the National Bank of Ukraine.

    Former governor Yakiv Smolii resigned in June due to “systemic political pressure.” Since then, two deputy governors have quit and one was not given a renewal when his term ended. Several other officials resigned as well, the latest being the financial monitoring director. This raised questions: Had they also left due to pressure? Or did Smolii’s successor Kyrylo Shevchenko ask them to leave in order to bring his own team into the central bank?

    We are joined by staff writer Igor Kossov.

Great podcast!

As an international reader, I enjoy reading the Kyiv Post from time to time to learn more about what's going on in Ukraine and more specifically its ongoing war with Russia. I think that this podcast does a great job of explaining issues within Ukraine for an international audience. Looking forward to listening to more podcast episodes!
