Hontareva says she sees no formal charges

NBU governor Valeria Hontareva has not received formal accusations against her, and considers the charges baseless, voiced in the press, on the sale of foreign currency at a “floating” rate.
The regulator’s governor told reporters on Wednesday, Ukrinform reports.
“We have not seen charges in the National Bank at all. We did not receive any documents on this subject. But what we have read in the media associated with this charge … Conducting interbank transactions by the NBU at various rates through interventions and organized auctions are our service responsibilities that are recorded in the Constitution and harshly regulated by the Law on the National Bank,” she said.
Hontareva recalled that the regulator moved to a policy of a “floating” rather than a fixed exchange rate two months prior to her appointment.
“On different days, we had a different course, and not fixed, to which the country became accustomed for the past 22 years, and I want to inform all once again that our country has moved to a flexible exchange rate in April this year. And I joined (headed the NBU – Ed.) in June,” she said.
Recall, the Pechersky District Court in Kyiv ordered the Kyiv prosecutor’s office to initiate an investigation into the actions of governor of the National Bank of Ukraine Valeria Hontareva and make an entry in the Unified Register of pre-trial investigations.
However, the prosecutor’s office said they had not received the court’s decision regarding the investigation into Hontareva’s actions.
