Bank of Russia to Promote Digital Ruble in Foreign Trade as Finance Ministry Pushes for Crypto Option

Days after the two institutions agreed on the need for cross-border crypto payments, the finance ministry and the central bank of Russia are once again highlighting their different priorities. While the treasury department aims for legalizing cryptocurrency payments in the coming months, the monetary authority says it will “actively promote” its digital currency for international settlements.

The Central Bank of Russia (CBR) will “actively promote” the employment of the digital ruble in cross-border payments, its Governor Elvira Nabiullina stated in a documentary aired by the Russia-24 TV channel. The film was devoted to the 220th anniversary of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. The department recently announced it had reached an agreement with the monetary authority on the need to legalize international crypto payments.
