The regulator says inflationary pressure remains high due to steady domestic demand, rapid growth of wages and a sharp rise in oil prices on global markets. A new inflation forecast will be announced on October 25, it said. As UNIAN reported earlier, inflation in Ukraine in September 2018 was estimated at 8.9% y-o-y, slowing down from 9.9% in July 2018. The National Bank predicts inflation by the end of 2018 at the level of 8.9%, which almost corresponds to the government forecast set at 9%. The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank expect this year&#39;s inflation in Ukraine to reach 9% and 10%, respectively.
