OREANDA-NEWS  The National Bank of Ukraine plans to limit card transfers between individuals by introducing maximum limits on the number and amount of transactions per month, Deputy chairman of the regulator Dmitry Oleinik told the Ukrainian edition of Focus.

"We are considering the possibility to introduce a framework for outgoing P2P transfers (so-called person-to-person transactions) from individual accounts of 100 thousand hryvnia (2.5 thousand dollars) per month and limit the number of such transfers to 30 within a month," Oleynik said.

He clarified that there are no plans to limit incoming transactions, so as not to complicate activities, for example, for volunteers. However, Oleinik stressed, limits are being introduced to combat shadow payments by intruders. According to the publication, according to analysts of the CASE Ukraine research organization, the state loses approximately at least 100 billion hryvnia (2.5 billion dollars) annually due to VAT schemes, counterfeit goods, the gray market of excisable goods, salaries "in envelopes".
