WARSAW (Reuters) – Poland’s central bank has signed an agreement with the National Bank of Ukraine that will allow any adult Ukrainian refugee from April 25 to live in Ukraine.

“Exchanges will be possible at a rounded, official… exchange rate,” the bank said in a statement.

Last week, the bank announced that it was working with the country’s largest lender, PKO BP, to provide hryvnia conversion services to refugees who fled Ukraine to Poland.

Many refugees struggle to buy themselves basic necessities because their hryvnia savings are non-convertible in most parts of Europe, meaning they have no way to exchange them at reasonable rates.
