Core inflation up to 4.5% per year is even desirable for Ukraine's economy, finance minister Yuri Kolobov told the international business conference ABC: Ukraine & Partners, ForUm correspondent reports.

"My personal position, which is supported by many experts, is that inflation should be. This is the basic principle of the economy development and there's nothing wrong".

However, the minister stressed that it is important to avoid sudden bursts of inflation. "Given the fact that since the beginning of the year inflation rate is close to zero, reforms in the energy sector may slightly revive consumer price trends," the minister said.
He added that to meet current budget and economy problems before the end of the year, the Ministry intends to raise $ 2 billion on foreign markets.

"At the same time, there is no pressing need to do so, as in recent days, the market has taken a wait and see attitude. The matter is that the yield on 10-year and 30-year U.S. treasury bonds, which determines cost of borrowed reserves on the world market, has rocketed to a maximum in the last 14 months. In any case, since the beginning of the year, we have raised 55% of the required amount of borrowing," Kolobov concluded.
