War in Ukraine / April 7

Occupant losses

Despite the war, the ruble is getting more expensive

A phenomenon that no one was prepared for is happening in russia right now. After the start of the war, the official ruble exchange rate jumped to 121 per dollar. The unofficial rate is almost two hundred rubles. It seemed that the situation would get worse. Instead, the ruble has consolidated over the past month and today costs about 75 rubles per dollar. According to economists, the rise could be even higher — up to 65 rubles per dollar.

  • When buying currency — a commission of 12% (this is a lot).
  • Companies must sell 80% of all currency received.
  • Restrictions on international transfers.

$4 billion/day

Instead, Ukraine’s losses from the war are enormous. Daily budget expenditures — UAH 2 billion (about $ 65 million), and losses — $4 billion. This refers to the destruction of infrastructure, lost profits, losses of future GDP. Due to the war and the blockade of ports, the country has to cancel its export potential. Inflation rose to 13.5%. At the same time, the hryvnia strengthened. We will remind, in Ukraine since the beginning of war the course is fixed, but currency operations are strongly limited. Against the background of panic, the black market jumped to UAH 40/$, but today it almost corresponds to the official figure — UAH 32/$ in exchange offices against 31/$ from the National Bank of Ukraine.
