According to the Prime Minister, as of to date the bank interest rates are rather high, due to high inflation expectations, unstable market in Ukraine and absence of the real investments inflow.
A.Yatsenyuk added that if Ukraine receives the financing support, there will be some opportunity to stabilize the currency exchange rate, create stability pile from the one side. But from the other side, it will attract additional private investors with money. And from the third side, it will give the possibility to change the interest rate.
