impact on the entire banking market. Interbank transactions can be fully
frozen - the ex-deputy chairman of NBU Sergey Yaremenko.
- In the limiting amounts of refinancing operations of the National Bank
it will be another impetus for a systemic crisis. " Meanwhile, some
believe that the co-owner of RosUkrEnergo not be so easy to get away from "Nadra".
"Company Group DF is public and operates in the international market.
If Mr. Firtash will leave "Nadra" and the bank goes bankrupt, this is serious
impact on his reputation as an investor and business partner in new deals
