The Itar-Tass correspondent witnessed a scene at a Sberbank branch next to Kiev’s central train station when people crowding at the entrance to the bank were asking the customers at the entrance it if they were about to sell dollars.

If the reply was yes, the buyers were just queuing up behind the person in an attempt to immediately buy the money back.
