The official is sure that government bonds should be of interest to the population, since the rate on them is higher than that offered by commercial banks on deposits, and reliability is also higher.
The Government believes that potentially more than UAH 400 billion, which the population now holds in bank accounts, is a source of investment in government bonds.
As the agency previously reported, since the beginning of March, the National Bank has purchased military government bonds for 225 billion from the government.
