That is, settlements in hryvnia today, delivery of the dollar tomorrow.
This is an unpopular format of transactions for our interbank market, and the majority of clients have either already closed their agreements on Friday, or will postpone these agreements right away to tomorrow, “the experts of the Ministry of Finance website note.
