Sayenko Kharenko has acted as Ukrainian legal counsel to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) on providing a dual-tranche UAH-denominated loan equivalent to USD 25 million to JSC “The State Export-Import Bank of Ukraine”. The synthetic local currency loan provides access to UAH loan funds for eligible SME borrowers.
