Russian Prime Minister Keen on Strategic Crypto Adoption

In order to build the future of the digital financial asset (DFA) market in the Russian Federation, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin instructed the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Russia to develop and turn in tangible ideas by December 1st.

According to RBC crypto, the directive came from the top of the Russian government, followed by a discussion on the country’s financial system. The senior official put pressure on the importance of DFAs in the current economic climate to allow ongoing imports and Russian exports payments.

The Russian government has assigned the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance to revise the country’s “Strategy for the Development of the Financial Market until 2030.” Mishustin has instructed that the document be updated to reflect President Putin’s directives along with the current geopolitical climate.

At the start of the year, Vladimir Putin stressed Russia’s potential as a currency minting destination and asked Russian government institutions to find agreement on the legislation of the digital currency. The Prime Minister stated in August that digital assets are a “safe alternative” for international transactions.

The Russian financial watchdog, Rosfinmonitoring, the Federal Tax Service, and the Federal Security Service have been tasked with working with the Treasury Department and the Monetary Authority by December 19th to build a uniform stance on the proposed regulations that would look after the issue and circulation of digital currency in Russia. Suggestions on allocating funds using the digital ruble are also required.

The digital money of Russia’s central bank and the decentralized cryptocurrency are now viewed as instruments in Moscow that may ease the impact of sanctions on the Russian economy and international commerce.
