Central bank: Ukraine has about 36.1 tons of gold in international reserves

KYIV, May 28 /UKRINFORM/. About 36.1 tons of gold was accumulated in the foreign exchange reserves of the National Bank of Ukraine as of May 1 this year.

This is stated in the comments of Deputy Chairman of the National Bank of Ukraine Vira Rychakovska.

"Over the years of Ukraine's independence, the National Bank has accumulated more than 36 tons of monetary gold. And by this indicator we are in the 47th place in the world," Rychakovska said.

According to her, one of the ways to replenish foreign exchange reserves is the purchase from the population of banking and precious metals through the regional offices of the National Bank.

"The NBU offers the public market-driven, competitive prices. The transactions are income tax free," Rychakovska said. Information about the purchase prices is posted on the pages of the official website of the National Bank of Ukraine.

Now the territorial units of the NBU, which buy precious metals in bullions and scrap, have modern weighing instruments and equipment ensuring the accuracy of testing, weighting and assessing valuables.

Due to the tax code changes, which entered into force in 2012, the NBU territorial units significantly increased the purchase of precious metals in the form of scrap from the public. In particular, compared with 2011, in 2012 the influx of gold to the National Bank of Ukraine increased by 28 times, silver 12 times.

"Banking and precious metals purchased from the population are brought by the National Bank of Ukraine to the requirements that apply to monetary gold in standard bullions, and credited to international reserves," as explained by the deputy chair of the NBU.
