NBU intensifies work on assessing state of banks assets.

"Now we are going to actively work with banks in order to see the picture as objectively as possible," Nikolaychuk said, adding that the final assessment of the state of the assets would be made after a corresponding audit after the end of the war.

According to him, the banking system has passed the initial "crash test" of the war very well and is working smoothly. "But it is clear that the medium-term challenge for the banking system is a significant deterioration in the quality of its assets," the NBU deputy governor explained.

"But after the end of the war, we will need to develop a recapitalization program together with banks, restoring indicators of stability to standard normative values," Nikolaychuk emphasized.
