The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) says that reports that NBU Governor Valeria Gontareva has submitted a letter of resignation are not true, according to the regulator's press service.


"The press service does not confirm the information about the resignation," it said in a comment to UNIAN about media reports on the resignation that cited Member of Parliament Iryna Lutsenko.

"We'll make an official announcement a month ahead," it said.

She was appointed chief banker after the Ukrainian parliament had supported Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's motion on June 19, 2014, to dismiss the then NBU governor Stepan Kubiv.

In keeping with the Ukrainian Constitution, the NBU governor shall be appointed by the parliament upon recommendation by the president for a period of seven years.
