Ukraine's gold and currency reserves are largest ever

Ukraine’s National Bank has boasted that it “inexplicably” holds a whopping $39 billion in foreign reserves, the highest level in history.

There was a $38.99 billion reserve held by Ukraine as of the beginning of the month, the National Bank of Ukraine declared in their latest figures, up from $37.3 billion in June. The size of the reserve is the largest since the fall of the Soviet Union.

According the National Bank, this reserve was achieved “thanks to sustained and regular inflows from international partners”, the receipts of which far exceeded the central bank’s outgoings of paying down foreign-held debt, and selling currency reserves to balance the economy.

Breitbart.com reports: The bank cited some of the June incomings which included $1.6 billion given to Ukraine’s central bank by the European Union, $1.2 billion from the United States, and $886 million from the World Bank.

The reserve is held in foreign currencies and gold, reports the Polish financial newspaper Rzeczpospolita.

Reuters reports Ukraine has received $23.6 billion in cash from Western partners this year so far.

Bank governor Andriy Pyshnyi thanked Western partners for the cash injections in a statement on the figures on Friday morning. He said:

This is a record for the entire independent history of Ukraine. An incredible achievement for a country at war… The involvement of international partners is extremely powerful, and the volume of external financing is historic.

This support is not charity… Thanks to our partners!
