Ukraine Plans Vouchers

KIEV, Jan 18 ( -- Ukraine's state savings bank said Thursday it planned to issue special privatization vouchers to compensate citizens whose savings were wiped out by runaway inflation four years ago.

Anatoly Kolesnikov, chairman of the Oshchadbank savings bank, said "compensation certificates" worth 357 trillion karbovanets (about $2 billion) would be issued to holders of more than 54 million savings accounts starting next month.
