The citizens of Russia in the framework of the plan on de-dollarization will still be able to open Bank accounts in dollars, said the head of VTB Andrey Kostin.

On Wednesday, the Russian government has said it is working to reduce the economy’s dependence on the dollar, including through incentive payments in national currencies, putting that to completely abandon the American currency is not planned. On Thursday, first Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov said that the plan for dedollarization of the Russian economy has already been prepared and submitted to the government.

As noted Siluanov, the government never discussed monetary limits for ordinary citizens. According to him. measures of de-dollarization will not affect foreign currency accounts: «no one is going to exclude the circulation of the dollar, nobody is going to force you to change dollar savings in ruble or something else.» As the Minister noted, primarily with the introduction of de-dollarization there is interest in that, «the ruble has increasingly gained space in calculations for products,» especially Russia’s exports, including oil and gas.

«Of course, you can (to open a Bank account in dollars). My advice is always to choose a closer Bank. Here the reliability of the banking system…», — said Kostin in the program «the fat. Sunday» on the First channel.

In his opinion, the residents should logically inside the country to feel themselves Russians, but move on to the fact that «we have a national currency, national interests.» Quite wrong, said Costin, «we have acres of land in Moscow is estimated in dollars.»

As said the head of VTB, recently the President of the United States Donald trump has offered to return to America the entire industry — the same should be done in Russia. The government will offer more favorable and interesting conditions for business and for citizens, he said.
