KIEV, February 20. /TASS/. Ukraine’s former President Viktor Yuschenko may take the position of the National Bank’s head, his press secretary Irina Vannikova said on Saturday.
On February 19, a respective petition had been registered on the website of Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko, she added.
"Between 1993 and 1999, Yuschenko was head of the National Bank already," the petition reads. "Under his management, Ukraine had a monetary reform, organized the State Treasury, and began construction of the Mint. In 1997, the Global Finance magazine put him among six best bankers. With the experience and knowledge he has, Yuschenko can develop the Ukrainian economy and improve positions of the national currency."
