The dollar exchange rate in Ukraine by the end of 2023 may increase and again step over the “psychological mark” of UAH 40. Experts suggest that it may settle at the level of 45 hryvnia/dollar. However, this is the most pessimistic rogue. According to the most optimistic, the rate may even fall below the current level of UAH 38.35/38.79 (buy/sell) – up to UAH 36.6.

At the same time, in the near future, according to the head of the analytical department of IC Concorde Capital Alexander Parashchey, the value of the dollar is likely to remain at its current level. But there is also a serious risk: the “dollar” will noticeably rise in price if the “grain agreement” is not extended.

The action of the grain corridor gave additional foreign exchange earnings from the export of grains and oilseeds in the amount of $1.5 billion. Suspension of the corridor will create a deficit in the interbank market and, as a result, the dollar may increase, Parashchy warned.
