Citing Bitcoin, Thursday (15/9/2022), Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin has told the Ministry of Finance to prepare, together with the Bank of Russia, and submit concrete proposals for the future of the digital financial asset market (DFA) in the Russian Federation by 1 December.

Proposals are also expected on the use of the digital ruble for budgetary purposes.
