Since russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine raised about UAH 30.3 billion, USD 12 million, and EUR 143.4 million through 14 auctions to sell war bonds. This is according to data released by the NBU Depository.
Primary dealer banks hold the largest portfolio of military domestic government debt securities. However, the share of households and businesses keeps on increasing.
As of 11 April 2022, over 5,900 Ukrainians and domestic businesses purchased nearly UAH 5.2 billion, USD 3.3 million, and EUR 21.9 million of military domestic government debt securities. Nonresidents have also been gradually increasing their investments. Their portfolio of military bonds has expanded by more than UAH 50 million since the beginning of the war of aggression.
The NBU keeps on calling to purchase war bonds and hence strengthen Ukraine’s financial defense.
