Ukraine’s Central Bank Decides to Liquidate Stolytsya Bank

Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Ukraine’s central bank will liquidate PAT Bank Stolytsya after the lender failed to restore financial stability following the 2008 global credit crisis.

The Natsionalnyi Bank Ukrainy appointed Evhen Kuno to supervise the liquidation process, according to a statement on the Kiev, Ukraine-based regulator’s website today. The central bank took the decision yesterday, it said.

Ukrainian banks were shaken by the global financial crisis, which dried up credit and weakened regional currencies. The former Soviet republic was forced to seek an International Monetary Fund bailout to support its financial industry.

Ukraine was in the process of liquidating 21 banks as of Dec. 29, according to central bank data.
