Ukraine cuts official hryvnia rate to 24.96 to dollar from 23.13

KIEV, Feb 9 (Reuters) - Ukraine cut the official rate of the hryvnia on Monday to an all-time low of 24.96 to the dollar from 23.13, the central bank said on its website, following a steep slump in the currency last week.

Last Thursday the hryvnia lost 30 percent against the dollar after the bank moved towards a free float.

Ukraine has been pushed close to bankruptcy by its conflict with Russia.
