Banking and financial law

Systemic crisis phenomena in the Ukrainian economy have led to serious problems in the banking sector. In part of Ukrainian banks, a provisional administration was introduced, some banks were liquidated or even nationalized. It should be noted that the described events as a whole benefited the banking system of Ukraine and the economy as a whole – despite serious problems with access and return of funds placed in problem banks by legal entities, sharp, sometimes just unpredictable jumps in the national currency, the market cleared of weak, subsidized, players and frankly unprofitable banks that existed exclusively through refinancing of the National Bank of Ukraine.

Such processes caused a panic both among private individuals and among companies that had settlement accounts or even deposits with troubled banks — the massive withdrawal of funds from deposit accounts, the fragmentation of large deposits, the withdrawal of funds from legal entities’ settlement accounts, the withdrawal of huge amounts of cash … such actions of bank customers have made a significant contribution to the escalation of the crisis of financial institutions.
