NBU Depository: Ukraine’s Borrowings through Auction to Sell Domestic Debt Instruments Exceed an Equivalent of UAH 187.5 Billion

According to the NBU Depository, since russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the government raised UAH 124,923.8 million, USD 1,445.9 million, and EUR 468.4 million from placement of domestic government debt securities through auctions and allocated UAH 198,955.2 million, USD 2,090.2 million, and EUR 168.0 million for redemption of domestic government debt securities. 

From April through August, in October, and from the start of November to date, the government repaid more than borrowed under internal debt transactions. Specifically, in the first four weeks of November, the net repaid amount was UAH 14,374.1 million. In March and September, the volumes raised to the state budget through auctions to sell domestic government debt securities exceeded the amount redeemed by the government on domestic debt instruments. 

Last week, the Ministry of Finance raised the interest rate on a number of hryvnia domestic government debt securities, with the maximum yield reaching 19.25% p.a. Overall, under martial law, the Ministry of Finance also raised interest rates on all U.S. dollar domestic government debt securities (maximum yield being 4.5% p.a.). However, rates on euro war bonds have not changed yet and make 2.5% p.a.

Today, everyone can purchase war bonds and strengthen the financial defense of Ukraine.
