This development is remarkable, and a huge leap for individual liberties for the Ukrainian people. This event is gliding well below the radars of goldbugs, but is a near model for what Ron Paul envisions for the American people if elected. The NBU is providing a competitive exchange medium for fiat currencies - - rightfully believing that citizens will replace their saving of foreign fiats (dollars?) with un-taxed precious metals .
Let's hope our own CIA or surrogate troublemakers don't prod unrest by tormenting this young country. And to you Russia: Hands Off the Ukrainians!
Give your mind the cursory thought that other central banks will follow!
