Hello, I have my grandfather's savings bank book (a citizen of the SOVIET UNION) from Lviv bank founded in October 1991 y. From what I can see on the currency this booklet Russian ruble. How would the conversion of the current Ukrainian currency ruble. Do you know what is the situation in the Ukrainian banks savings recovery by Polish citizens, If I wanted to try for these measures? Thank you and best regards

    Marzena Hi! Are periodic payments, and payout periods unknown, because e.g.. last year already (before the elections) She was paid a portion of the savings, 1000 hryvnia, in terms of 1 until 1. Previously payments were a few years ago.

    So my guess, that the next payment of this is some sort of election in Ukraine.

    The procedure looks like a little complicated for the foreigner, because, you need to subscribe at just the right time for such payment, and a few times to visit the appropriate service of the Bank, and opdowiedni bank is determined depending on where a person lived.

    I like to help and try to mediate in this case, but rather grumpy process, tymbardziej, as far as I know, at this point, there is no payout.

Thank you for your reply. Can you tell where I could ask for help in order to recover the money. Or can you recommend a lawyer/law firm which specializes in similar cases in Ukraine. whether you know someone who tried to retrieve the money in this way and it worked? Best regards

    Marzena, at this point, it's hard to advise you something, so I know these people, but are citizens of Ukraine, and on-the-spot live here, as I said previously, there are periodic payments, Once a very rare time (rather, it looks like to me as the pre-electoral promotion). I think that you need to look for a lawyer in Lviv, because the book is from there.
