“As for the ruble as a currency, since June 25 we have set the hryvnia exchange rate to the ruble at 1 to 1.5, it was my decree that the ruble circulates along with the hryvnia, that is, a bi-currency system has been introduced and all enterprises of trade, industry, all are aimed at using the ruble,” he said.

Ganchev noted that the displacement of the hryvnia is a natural process, since the currency does not come from Ukraine.

“In any case, of course, there is already a complete understanding here that our Russian ruble will be fully introduced here over time as a single currency, but for now, of course, a dual-currency system is being introduced, along with the hryvnia, the ruble goes the same way,” he concluded. .

Earlier, the Kherson region and part of the Zaporozhye region on their territories set a new exchange rate of the Ukrainian hryvnia against the Russian ruble, now it is 1 to 1.5.
