NBU leaves rates at 17.5% amid increasing risk of inflation
Journal Staff Report

KYIV, June 7 – The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) board has decided to keep the refinancing rate at 17.5%, citing inflationary risk.

"The decision was required to neutralize inflation risks, which have increased since the previous decision taken in April, and to attain the 5% inflation target next year," the NBU said on its website.

"Consumer price inflation has been above the NBU's forecast for two months running. In April, its annual reading was 8.8% and it continued to accelerate in May, according to NBU estimates. However, the acceleration is mostly driven by temporary factors, which include higher prices for some vegetables and fuel," the report says.
