"This tax is a worldwide practice, it is normal modern initiative and we fully support it," he said.
In his view, the introduction of this tax is not return to the past. "There are no restrictions and there is a set of tools for easy exchange transactions. Against the background of panic and statements of pseudo experts, people are worrying about their savings, go and buy the currency and trigger demand for currency. A few days later the panic disappears and the rate decreases. There are several hundred people, who earn on ordinary Ukrainians," the representative of the NBU said.
