In January 2024, Ukrainians bought a record amount of currency from banks in 11 years. This was reported by the National Bank of Ukraine.
Compared to December, the purchase volume increased by 7,5%. Analysts believe that in this way Ukrainians are trying to preserve their savings. The total volume of foreign currency savings of Ukrainians “under the pillow” is estimated at $120 billion.
