Tbilisi (GBC) - Foreign exchange reserves decreased in June as well. This time, there is a slight decrease to 19 million USD.

In May, according to the NBG, a $214.3 million decrease in official international reserves was noted. Along with the provision of foreign exchange expenses (loan servicing) by the government, the reduction of reserves was caused by the foreign exchange interventions of the Central Bank of Ukraine. NBG sold up to 109 million in May to calm down the market, if the effect of a large one-time transaction did not create some expectations.

In June, the NBG sold another $60 million at the foreign exchange auction (at the exchange rate of $1/GEL 2.8635).
