The national bank coded data on volumes of refinancing of the Ukrainian banks.
Since the beginning of February of NBU I stopped publishing information on volumes of refinancing of banks, writes "Business".
If in the last months on NBU site regularly there were data on volume and a type of the granted loans, now on a web - a portal of the regulator there is information only about results of tenders on maintenance of liquidity of banks.
In a press - to service NBU explained that the department of monetary policy of National Bank began to provide information in such view of a site. At the same time the head of this department Natalya Grebennik refused comments and advised to address in a press - service NBU.
Without publishing data on the volume of refinancing of banks, National Bank as the newspaper writes, solves two problems: doesn't allow a business community to argue on level of the help which NBU gives banks, and removes possibility of political speculation round a question of granting to banks of money. Especially important it if NBU increases volumes of such help.
The majority of bankers is estimated positively by such actions of NBU. "The position of National bank such is that the publication of such information at the moment can do much harm to banks", - Yaroslav Kolesnik tells Forum bank preboards.
"Many mass media and politicians speculated with refinancing figures, now an agiotage round the sums allocated for support of banks too much, has to become less", - considers preboards of other bank.
Meanwhile, for the current month the National Bank accepted already a number of the measures directed on restriction a refinansirovniya of banks. So, since February 17 of NBU I raised rates on the credits овернайт. On security OVGZ the National Bank gives out now "Night money" under 18% per annum (there were 16%), and without providing - under 20% per annum (there were 17%).
Besides since the beginning of month the resolution No. 33 which limits possibility of banks to obtain the credits from NBU on the security of currency came into force. And since February 3 42-е the resolution significantly reduced number of appeals of banks behind NBU refinancing.
In an informal situation bankers say that in February of NBU very reluctantly gives out refinancing even on the security of OVGZ. "A number of banks which else have state bonds, were refused National Bank in refinancing.Last Monday Natalya Grebennik at the closed meeting with heads of banks warned that refinancing will be reduced and blank crediting (the poor credits) at all will cancel soon", - the treasurer of bank tells.
Bankers claim that the regulator reduces liquidity of system for the sake of hryvnia exchange rate maintenance.
For the last 4 months of NBU I allocated for refinancing of banks over 100 billion hryvnias (taking into account the credits овернайт). Deputies and Cabinet of Ministers rigidly criticized NBU for, in their opinion, opaque and excessive refinancing. Especially - for allocation of 7 billion to Nadra bank on parole Dmitry Firtash.
