What conditions did the head of the regulator tell about? According to Nabiullina, the digital ruble should allow it to be freely transferred to other forms of money. Also, the virtual currency cannot have an impact on inflation in Russia, the Central Bank Сhairman added.

Nabiullina noted that testing of the pilot project of the digital asset may take more than a year. It is planned to start in the first quarter of 2022.

What had happened before? As we mentioned on November 15, the Accounts Chamber auditor Alexei Savatyugin said that the regulator is generally not against the digital ruble. According to him, its introduction should complicate the lives of unscrupulous market participants and fraudsters. But it is unlikely to completely solve the problem of fraud, Savatyugin noted.
