Since the beginning of the year, the Finance Ministry has raised UAH 48.8 billion towards the state budget as a result of auctions on the placement of domestic government bonds.

Chairman of the Council of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) Bohdan Danylyshyn wrote about this on Facebook.

"Since the beginning of the year, the volume of domestic government bonds placed by the Finance Ministry has come to UAH 48.8 billion, which is almost two times higher compared with the corresponding period last year, and totals about 11% of the annual plan for the placement of government securities in the domestic market. At the same time, the value of government domestic borrowings denominated in hryvnia continue to grow and amounted to 11.72% as the results of two auctions in February, which exceeds both January (11.29%) and February last year (9.79%),” he wrote.

He added that the amount of domestic government bonds owned by non-residents increased by UAH 1.8 billion to UAH 100.1 billion last week, which is the highest value since June 2020. Instead, since the beginning of the year, the amount of domestic government bonds in the NBU portfolio decreased by UAH 2.5 billion to UAH 322.1 billion.

As reported by Ukrinform, in 2020, the Ukrainian Finance Ministry raised UAH 382.3 billion towards the state budget as a result of auctions on the placement of domestic government bonds.
