National Bank denies reports of its head's resignation

Ukraine's central bank said Monday that information on its head Valeriia Hontarieva's resignation that appeared in the press was incorrect.

Censor.NET reports citing Reuters.

Earlier on Monday, news agency RBK quoted sources close to President Petro Poroshenko as saying that Hontarieva had submitted a letter of resignation to the president and that it had been accepted.

"The central bank traditionally announces upcoming changes to its board a month in advance. There has been no such announcement, which means the information is not true," the central bank's press service said in a statement.

According to the constitution, the president is responsible for choosing and dismissing the central bank governor.

Parliament can vote to remove the governor but needs the president's backing.Источник: https://censor.net.ua/en/n429781
