Public Privat have blocked the possibility to exchange the hryvnia into foreign currency through the “Privat24”. So, in the Internet banking the financial institution has ceased to operate the corresponding page, and posted a message to customers.
“In connection with the requirement of the legislation of Ukraine to carry out cashless foreign exchange transactions exclusively through the Interbank foreign exchange market (the interbank FX market), the regulation of such operations is provided in compliance with the rules of the interbank FX market. To sell the currency in the remote channels of the Bank, in the working days from 10:00 to 16:00 at the current exchange rate at the time of the operation in the menu “Transfer funds between Your accounts”. … To acquire foreign currency to transfer abroad, you can on the pages of “SWIFT-payments” and “Transfers”. Please note: when applying for the purchase of foreign currency the Bank may require supporting documents target the purchase of foreign currency funds,” the Bank said.
In addition, “Private” says that looking for ways to return the favor in the future – with a new mechanism.
We will remind, earlier the National Bank said that state – owned Oschadbank and PrivatBank have already started to compete with each other. In the regulator consider this situation to be prophetic not the best.
