In NBU believe that the ban Russia transfers to Ukraine will not affect the banking system.
The first Deputy head of the National Bank Yakov Smoliy notes that the Russian Federation’s decision to ban money transfers to Ukraine through international payment systems without account opening will not affect the banking system of Ukraine.
He reported about it to journalists.
“I don’t think it will have an impact on the banking system, because the amount is insignificant, and the Ukrainians are so creative that they will find other ways to transfer funds,” – said resin.
According to him, for 2 months 2017 Ukraine has received from Russia by means of such transfers of about $90 million, and the most popular means to transfer funds without opening accounts, which now will not work, has been Western Union and MoneyGram, but interbank transfers continue to work.
Smoliy reminded that the national Bank allows citizens who are studying or working in Russia to open accounts in Russian banks.
Resin also said that the decision of the Russian Federation on the prohibition of money transfers to Ukraine through MPs, is likely a response to the decision of the Council of national security and defense of Ukraine to ban the Russian payment systems on the territory of our country.
