Fake Andrii Pyshnyi , the head of the National Bank of Ukraine, resigned

In some Ukrainian media, and on anonymous telegram channels and Russian media broadcasting pro-Kremlin rhetoric, the news spread that the head of the National Bank of Ukraine Andrii Pyshnyi allegedly wrote a statement about the dismissal of the head of the NBU “after threats from the US Embassy”. It seems that he did this during the Annual Meeting of the IMF and the World Bank, which is taking place in Morocco, because “he understands how the use of gold and foreign exchange reserves at the request of the Office of the President will end for him”. It's fake.

The case was examined by fact-checkers from the Center for Countering Disinformation. Andrii Pyshnyi did not resign. Moreover, he commented on this fake on his Facebook page and denied the information spread by propagandists.

Russian propaganda is trying to discredit the Ukrainian authorities and undermine the trust of Ukrainians in them, and also sow panic over the news about the course release. Previously, we refuted the fake that during her visit to New York, Olena Zelenska bought jewelry worth more than a million dollars.
