KYIV, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Ukraine’s hryvnia currency slipped to 27 per U.S. dollar for the first time since early September, Refinitiv data showed on Wednesday.
The currency has weakened because of foreign capital outflows amid growing concerns over Russian troop movements near Ukraine’s borders and fears Russia is preparing for a military escalation against Ukraine. The Kremlin has denied having any such plans. (Reporting by Natalia Zinets; editing by Matthias Williams and Jon Boyle)
