The volume of public and government-guaranteed debt of Ukraine in February 2020 slightly decreased in dollar terms by 0.02%, to $83.38 billion, the Ministry of Finance reports.

In hryvnia equivalent, the debt for the said period also slid by almost 1.5%, down to UAH 2.048 trillion.

The factor influencing fluctuations of the public debt volume was hryvnia devaluation against the dollar, which the National Bank of Ukraine says amounted to 1.8% in February.

It is also reported that in February, the Ministry of Finance held four auctions on the placement of government bonds, which attracted UAH 14 billion to the state budget.
