president.gov.ua Decree No. 470 2016 was published on the official website of the President of Ukraine. On September 20, Ukrainian Finance Minister Oleksandr Danyliuk said he expected the transfer of UAH 38 billion of profit of the National Bank of Ukraine to the state budget in the near future in connection with the forthcoming appointment of the members of the NBU Council on the President&#39;s quota, which would allow approving the regulator&#39;s reporting and transferring funds. According to the NBU estimates, the transfer of the regulator&#39;s profit to the state budget will not have any pressure on the currency market, as it will take place in several tranches and partially offset by the repayment by the Ministry of Finance of the government bonds in the NBU&#39;s portfolio and the relevant coupons. It is noted that the NBU Council has been incapacitated since September 2015, when the mandate of its previous composition ended. Thus, the NBU Council has now seven members and it can start its work.
