The savings of Ukrainian citizens outside the banking system are estimated at $ 30-35 billion. This estimate was given by the chairman of the National Bank Kyrylo Shevchenko during the Kyiv Economic Forum. As ldaily.ua informs

There are different estimates of the “gray” economy. We in the National Bank believe that this is up to 30% of GDP. If we talk about the savings of Ukrainian citizens who are outside the banking system after 2010, it is equal to $ 30-35 billion – in dollars, euros and hryvnias, “Shevchenko said.

“As for the question of how to get this money” from under the mattress “, it is a non-bank financial market. Today this market is more dynamic, its way to the client is shorter than that of banks,” the head of the central bank added.

Shevchenko also noted that citizens have 2.5 investment options: deposits, real estate and IGLBs, which he estimated at 0.5.

The head of the parliamentary committee on finance, tax and customs policy, Danylo Hetmantsev, believes that Ukrainians are keeping $ 50 billion of undeclared income in the shadows.
