In February, the portfolio of domestic government bonds owned by non-residents grew by UAH 6.5 billion, according to Chairman of the Council of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) Bohdan Danylyshyn.

"The largest buyers of government bonds in the past month were non-residents, who increased their portfolio of domestic government bonds by UAH 6.5 billion (about USD 233 million), and now, with a share of 10%, they are the third largest group of investors in domestic government bonds (after banks and the National Bank, with shares of 51.4% and 31.5%, respectively),” Danylyshyn wrote on Facebook.

According to him, as a result of borrowings on the domestic market in February, the state budget was replenished with UAH 25.7 billion, USD 25.7 billion, and EUR 70.5 million.

In January-February 2021, the volume of government borrowings was only 68.6% of the planned target for this period, which restrained the expenditures on the general fund of the state budget, which were made in the amount of 90.7% of the planned target for the reporting period

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.
