Alfa-Bank, OTKRITIE, Promsvyazbank and several other major banks will prepare a letter to the Chairman of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina with a request not to introduce a mandatory requirement to transfer all budget funds, including salaries, pensions and paid sick leave, on the card “the World”, reports “Kommersant”. Earlier the Central Bank announced that banks should provide the public sector with maps, “World”, which will be charged to their salary, to January 1, 2018: it is expected that all transactions in the accounts, which received money from the budget, will be carried out only by national maps.

I don’t think there is any kind of compromise on this issue”, – said the publication of the Deputy.
