The NBU intends to reduce 1.2 thousand staff before the end of the year (2015) as a result of the abolition of non-key functions of the controller.

“Since 2014, 5,270 staff of the NBU (-45%) have already been removed from the structure of the NBU, nearly 1.2 thousand more are scheduled to be removed before the end of 2015 (-55% in total),” she stated in the presentation.
According to the presentation, as a result of the abolition of non-essential regulatory functions, 490 mil. UAH will be saved per year.
