Analyst: “In August, we forecast that gross international reserves will jump to USD 12 bln on the backdrop of the USD 1.7 bln IMF wire. Further developments will depend on progress in debt operation.”

KYIV, Aug 8, 2015 (UBO) - Ukraine’s gross international reserves increased USD 111 mln (+1.1% m/m) in July to USD 10.4 bln, the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) reported on August 5, Concorde Capital informed its clients in an online advisory.

The loan from the EU (EUR 600 mln), USD-denominated state bonds placement (USD 205 mln) and NBU purchases of foreign currency on the market (USD 89 mln) were the key factors which secured the increase in gross reserves. The major part of that foreign currency inflow was spent on debt servicing and redemptions, including USD 307 mln on USD-denominated state bonds and a USD 219 mln repayment to the IMF.

Concorde analyst Alexander Paraschiy added: “There is no surprise regarding the NBU reserves in July, as their inflow and outflow were quite clear and predictable. The IMF wire was delayed, current accounts are almost balanced and capital accounts were supported with the first wire under the third Macro-Financial Loan from EU. Importantly, the NBU has made its reserves much more predictable as it has stopped direct sales of hard currency from the reserves to the state-run gas monopoly Naftogaz...........

Former employees of Russia’s largest state-media holding have divulged behind-the-scenes details about what they portray as a Kremlin propaganda campaign to deliberately mislead and inflame television audiences with news coverage of the Ukraine conflict.

The Russian culture website this week published tell-all accounts by two people about their time working at VGTRK, Russia’s main state broadcasting company, whose networks included the national Rossia-1 channel.

They describe how Kremlin officials dictated to VGTRK management and editors how news events should be covered, including whether incendiary buzzwords to discredit Ukraine should be deployed on air.

One source said weather reports were even used for propaganda purposes after Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea territory in March 2014 and the ensuing war between Kyiv’s forces and Russian-backed separatists that the UN says has killed more than 6,400 people.

The August 6 report by did not identify the two sources by name. Their testimony was gathered by Aleksandr Orlov, a former deputy editor in chief with VGTRK’s 24-hour news network, Rossia-24.

Orlov, who says he was fired two years ago for his support of Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny, is currently writing a book about Russian television.
