Also, according to Postolenko, the reduction of income VEB could affect short maturity bonds with high interest rates and a decrease in the yield of Federal loan bonds and corporate bonds with the so-called floating rates. The key rate of the Central Bank, interbank rates and inflation during the year was reduced, therefore decreased and interest income of bond holders, he said.
