"Next year large payments of part of Ukreximbank and Oschadbank's eurobonds are scheduled. According to our opinion, the schedule would be observed. We do not see any problems," he said at the presentation of the fifth report on financial stability on Tuesday.
In general, Vavryschuk said that today foreign debt of the banking sector reached $6 billion.
