The idea to introduce a 15 percent tax on currency exchange is aimed to stop the panic in the market of cash payments, chairman of the NBU's Committee for the prevention of dishonest foreign exchange operations Yuriy Horshkov said in a statement posted on the central bank's web site.

At the same time, Horshkov noted that the 15-percent tax cannot cause an improvement in exchange by the same percentage. 

According to him, the introduction of this tax tightens a responsibility for the currency exchange under the old rules. 

He also added that the tax will be collected only from cash payments, because this segment, rather than the interbank market, is put to the panic.
