We are demanding measures to stabilize the economic situation, or otherwise Ukraine will be swept by mass protests: budget sector workers, pensioners, students -- they will all take to the streets," she said.
On April 9, Kiev residents rallied near the National Bank building in support of their demands for economic stabilization. The bank's president, Stepan Kubiv, came out to the demonstrators and said that one month was not enough and that he needed more time to get his bearings.
Meanwhile, Ukrainians are withdrawing cash from banks. In March, total individual deposits in Ukrainian banks shrunk by around 6 percent or 26 billion hryvnias (around 72.5 billion rubles) and total corporate deposits decreased by 3 percent.
Banks are trying to reverse the situation by offering higher interest rates on deposits. But most clients are scared.
