Deputy Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine Kateryna Rozhkova has announced that an estimated amount of NBU profit to be transferred to the national budget in 2018 is UAH 47.8 billion, or US$1.8 billion.
"But there are two points. Firstly, the profit will be as it will be approved by auditors. And secondly, we are most likely to continue work with the Finance Ministry on [bond] re-profiling, which can change the financial result," Rozhkova told journalists specifying that it is profit for 2017 that will be channeled into the 2018 budget.
In her words, the re-profiling of domestic government bonds in the NBU portfolio can be carried out before the end of the year.
