Alexei Vedev, Doctor of Economic Sciences, Head of the Financial Studies Department of the Gaidar Institute took part in the “Den. Glavnoe” (Day. Topical Issues) program on RBC-TV.

The program dealt with the measures of mandatory sale of foreign-exchange earnings; these measures are in effect till April 30, 2024. According to the Executive Order of RF President Vladimir Putin, exporters are obligated to deposit within 60 days at least 80% of their foreign-exchange earnings to their bank accounts and sell within 14 days over 90% of those funds. Andrei Gangan, First Deputy of the Monetary Policy Department of the Central Bank of Russia said that the Executive Order on mandatory sale of foreign-exchange earnings was losing its relevance due to the RF Central Bank’s tight monetary policy.
