On Tuesday, April 20, the Ministry of Finance placed government domestic loan bonds for UAH 4.593 billion.

The Ministry of Finance has said this in a statement, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The Ministry of Finance offered investors four issues of securities in national currency.

The maturity of the offered government bonds is three months, one year, 1.5 years, and six years.

Taking into account the growth in the rates of yield on OVDPs in the secondary market, the weighted average yield at primary auctions increased on three-month OVDPs - by 73 bp, one-year ones - by 40 bp, 1.5-year ones - by 20 bp, six-year ones - by 25 bp.

Thus, the weighted average yield of three-month government bonds was 8.50%, one-year bonds - 11.15%, 1.5-year bonds - 11.30%, six-year bonds - 12.75%.

As a result of the auctions, the state budget attracted the equivalent of UAH 4,592.850 million.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, in 2019, the Ministry of Finance raised UAH 227.6 billion, USD 4.3 billion, and EUR 387 million to the state budget from the government bond placement.

In 2020, the Ministry of Finance raised UAH 258.8 billion, USD 3.9 billion, and EUR 845 million into the state budget through the placement of government domestic loan bonds.
