Nationalization “PrivatBank” is the only option to save funds more than 20 million citizens of Ukraine and save its financial system. This was during the briefing, which was broadcast channel “112 Ukraine”, said the head of the NBU Valery Gontareva.

“We are convinced that the transition of the Bank into state ownership is the only option to save depositors’ funds to rescue the financial system. Thus we protect more than 20 million citizens of Ukraine who supported and keep money in the Bank. First and foremost, we are talking about 3.2 million pensioners, more than 500 thousand students and 1.6 million other socially unprotected citizens. No less important to preserve financial stability and prevent the growth of social tensions is the fact that you will not lose your money and will be able to continue working uninterrupted 500 thousand individual entrepreneurs, as well as 600 thousand enterprises from small to large. And 3.6 million workers will retain access to their wages, including 2.2 million workers of budgetary establishments and 1.4 million workers are commercial organizations,” she said.
