Ukraine's central bank limited bank withdrawals to about 1,000 euros a day on Friday in the latest sign of the desperate state of national finances and a run on bank accounts.
The crisis measure, which lifted the national hryvnia currency from record low levels, limits withdrawals from bank accounts to 15,000 hryvnia (1,095 euros, $1,400) per day.
The previous ceiling was about five times higher.
The central bank's new control measures include a $5,500 monthly limit on the amount of foreign currency which an individual can obtain.
