The dollar has risen, will there be a shortage of fuel and why Ukrainians will not be able to pay taxes yet: the consequences of missile attacks on Ukraine
Ukrainians in any unstable situation go to the gas station.
The massive rocket attack on Ukraine led not only to destruction and death of people, but also to tangible economic consequences, including on a global scale. We tell you which areas of the economy and trade were affected by Russian missile strikes on the very first day.
Dollar grows again in Ukraine
Against the backdrop of Russian missile strikes, instability began in the Ukrainian foreign exchange market. Thus, the hryvnia for the first time in the last 2,5 weeks of strengthening weakened by an average of 58 kopecks today.
On the black market for currencies by 17:00, the dollar was already offered for 41,6 UAH. Some citizens especially interested in making a profit on the panic offered the dollar and 42-43 UAH., however, there are only a few such offers, and against the background of a large number of cheaper offers, the American currency at this price is not yet in demand.
At the same time the official rate of the NBU remained at the same level - UAH 36,56.
Until taxes are paid
At the State Tax Service сообщилиthat access to its electronic services is temporarily restricted in the country. This was done in order to preserve the data of taxpayers in connection with massive missile strikes throughout Ukraine.
And what about the fuel and the lines behind it?
It is reported that after the massive shelling of Ukrainian cities throughout Ukraine, long lines formed at gas stations - as if during a period when there was a shortage of fuel at gas stations.
However, experts reassure the Ukrainians, explaining that this is a consequence of panic, and there will be no shortage.
On words Director of Consulting Group A-95 Sergei Kuyun, at present, the fuel market of Ukraine is functioning normally: there are stocks, new deliveries of fuel are steadily going on.
The same is said in the government. Thus, the head of the parliamentary committee on energy and housing and communal services Andrey Gerus emphasizesthat there is no shortage of fuel in Ukraine now, and therefore there is no point in standing in lines at gas stations.
"Today in the morning most of the gas stations were really not working, but the reason for this was not a lack of fuel, but an air raid warning. Now the vast majority of gas stations are open. There are enough oil products in the country and they are dispersed over a large number of storage sites. There were no missile strikes on oil storage sites today, and such strikes will no longer be effective.He wrote.
Wheat prices skyrocketed around the world
According to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the explosions in Kyiv have increased risks to stable grain exports, leading to futures growth by 5%. About it пишет Bloomberg. It is noted that problems with the supply of grain have already begun, including due to the fact that the Russian Federation today also attacked Odessa, a major transshipment point for grain cargo and one of three ports subject to the grain agreement.
Thus, futures for wheat in Chicago rose to 9,2425 dollars per bushel, showing the largest increase this month. In general, wheat prices have risen by about 20% this year.
