Ukrainian Exchange Launches Options Trading

In the news that probably will not have much practical interest to most readers, but for the sake of complete volatility coverage ... Ukrainian Exchange listed options on UX Index - the benchmark stocks index of the Ukraine. I could not find volume information but open interest is high - higher than GVZ, for example. Implied volatility for June is about 35-40, and more or less closely follows the RTSVX - the Russian Volatility Index.

Press release here, exchange's website here.
