At its 26 August meeting, the NBU Council relieved Roman Borysenko of office as NBU Deputy Governor, effective 28 August 2020. During his time in office, Roman Borysenko was in charge of the regulator’s financial, administrative, and operational functions.
Roman Borysenko submitted his letter of voluntary resignation to NBU Governor Kyrylo Shevchenko.
"The NBU’s transformation into a modern, open, and independent European central bank is a shared goal and priority for our entire team. We are grateful to Roman Borysenko for his leadership role over the past four years in bringing this goal closer to reality. Going forward, we will continue to improve all of the Ukrainian central bank’s internal processes, especially with regard to financial management, administration, and operations, in order to consolidate quality achievements and strengthen the NBU’s institutional independence," said NBU Governor Kyrylo Shevchenko.
