The Bank of Russia – the central bank of Russia – said it's exploring the possibilities of issuing the central bank digital currency (CBDC), a digital ruble.

  • In an advisory report, the Russian central bank said it doesn't see the digital ruble as a replacement for cash or non-cash rubles, but as a supplement.
  • The central bank said it hasn't yet decided whether to issue a CBDC but will hold a public consultation period on the matter. The bank said it considers it vital to discuss key aspects, advantages, possible risks, stages and timing of a digital ruble project "with the financial sector, the expert community as well as with all stakeholders."
