Russian Central Bank again pointed to the threats posed by bitcoin

The head of the Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina has repeatedly stated that the regulator will not allow the recognition of digital currencies in our country as a means of payment.
The Central Bank believes that bitcoin and other virtual currencies pose a threat to the stability of the state’s financial sector.
However, under pressure from the government, the Central Bank has recently softened its position and agreed to the use of digital assets in international operations. The Russian government is now discussing the issue.
