The main topic of the meeting was the financial stability of the country, according to a posting on the page of the National Bank of Ukraine on Facebook.

“It is expected that the joint meeting will result in a plan for the stabilization of the banking system and the experts’ active involvement in the anti-crisis program of the NBU.

"I discussed with the former governors the budgetary situation in the country, ways for the legalization of the shadow economy, and the possibility of resuming lending,” Gontareva said.

“NBU analysts will help conduct research to assess the impact of the war on the country's economy and its banking system," the governor said in a statement.
