The U.S. dollar has risen in price by 50 tyiyns and exceeded 69 soms over the past ten days in Kyrgyzstan.
Today, the capital’s exchange offices and commercial banks buy the U.S. currency for 68.9 — 69.17 soms and sell — for 69-69.35 soms. The nominal rate was set at 68,9763 soms (0.29 percent growth per day).
Recall, the dollar has been fluctuating since mid-August in Kyrgyzstan. In response to another round of anti-Russian sanctions, it began to grow and approached 70 soms. This forced the National Bank of Kyrgyzstan to intervene for the first time in four months and sell dollars in the foreign exchange market. The rate fell to 68.9 soms, but the currency began to grow again at the end of the last week.
