For the duration of martial law in Ukraine, holidays provided by the Labor Code of Ukraine are cancelled. Respective provisions are prescribed in the Law of Ukraine On Labor Relations under Martial Law.
Considering provisions of said law as well as martial law, the holiday on 24 August - Independence Day of Ukraine on Wednesday is a routine business day for the banking system as well.
On 24 August 2022, the System of Electronic Payments (SEP), the custodial accounting system of the NBU Depository, the Depository Institution of the NBU, and the CERTIF quantitative accounting system of certificate of deposits will operate as usual.
Please be reminded that during the full-scale war, SEP continues business as usual (23/7), free of disruption, like in times of peace. All Ukrainian banks are connected to SEP and are making payments to customers almost 24/7 without days-off.
