Ukraine’s central bank governor Kyrylo Shevchenko resigned unexpectedly on October 4, saying he was leaving for health reasons, after just over two years in office.

Shevchenko said in a statement on Facebook that he had resigned “due to the health-related issues that cannot be ignored any longer”. He submitted his resignation to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, who nominated Shevchenko in July 2020 after effectively dismissing his predecessor, Yakiv Smolii.
