the Leader of a seminar, chief GU of currency regulation and currency control of the Central Bank Victor Melnikov has noticed that the Central Bank not only cares of information support of input of new denominations, but also tries to facilitate destiny of banks - importers of cash currency. So, the Central Bank has already addressed in the State Customs Committee with the request to lower custom charges from the banks importing into Russia cash currency (now it makes 0,15 %), and also to simplify and accelerate process of service of customs cargo at import of cash currency. In particular the Central Bank intends to achieve the permission for bank collector services to take away cash currency directly from the plane which has arrived from the USA (now the monopoly for it belongs to service “ the Moscow collection “). Besides the American colleagues of the basic banks - importers, obviously, will increase for them limits by delivery of dollars to Russia.
