no plans to introduce additional restrictions on foreign currency savings - Kommersant
The Central Bank (CB) considers the floating exchange rate of the ruble an effective mechanism for economic stability, said Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank Alexei Zabotkin. According to him, the state does not plan to introduce new restrictions on the disposal of foreign currency savings of Russians.
Mr. Zabotkin said that the ruble exchange rate will remain floating and "will reflect the balance of supply and demand." According to him, this "is a very important mechanism that gives flexibility to adjust the economy to changes in external factors."
“None (new.— "b") the state does not intend to impose restrictions on the disposal of foreign currency savings,” said Alexei Zabotkin at a briefing in Nizhny Novgorod (quoted by TASS).
In March 2022, against the backdrop of sanctions, the Central Bank limited the issuance of foreign currency from existing deposits in the amount of $10,000 for six months, until September 9. Later, the regulator extended these restrictions twice more: first until 9th of March 2023, then until 9th of September. Head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina explainedthat this is due to the sanctions imposed on the import of dollar and euro banknotes into the country. Banks in the Russian Federation have become enter commissions for storing currency on accounts.
