Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov redirected the issue of a possible ban on cryptocurrencies in Russia to the Central Bank, TASS reports.
“This is not the prerogative of the Kremlin, this is the prerogative of the mega-regulator, so go there,” he told reporters.
Earlier, Bloomberg, citing its own sources, reported that the FSB convinced the head of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, Elvira Nabiullina, to support a complete ban on operations with cryptocurrencies in Russia.
In December, Reuters wrote about the plans of the central bank to ban investments in crypto assets and Sergey Mendeleev, CEO of Indefibank, reported.
The Central Bank itself has not yet commented on the situation.
