KIEV, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Ukraine's central bank vowed on Monday to do what was necessary to uphold financial stability after massive protests against President Viktor Yanukovich at the weekend forced it to intervene on the currency market.

In a statement, the National Bank of Ukraine said it was ready to increase its presence on "all market segments" to ensure they remained in balance.

It added that it had not imposed any restrictions on the money and foreign exchange markets. It also urged depositors to "be confident in the banking system" and not to withdraw their savings. (Reporting by Richard Balmforth; Editing by Douglas Busvine)
