President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych believes that new strict rules on currency exchange procedure, introduced by the National Bank, defend national interests of Ukraine.

"I had very serious conversation with the National bank authorities after they had introduced these passports...But later I studied the problem more thoroughly and I understood the reason," Yanukovych told in an interview with a talk show on National TV channel.

According to him, shadow business and corrupt officials have been sucking out currency from Ukraine. The president noted that NBU "might have exaggerated a little", having created inconveniences for citizens, but in the end "500 million of currency has been saved for a week."
