“Restrictions in the work of SWIFT will not affect the work of the MKB and the bank's clients in any way.

All transactions within Russia will be carried out as quickly as usual, including card transactions, money transfers, payment for goods and services.

The press service noted that limiting the work of SWIFT could lead to an increase in the time for making payments abroad.

Earlier, the EU authorities approved the sixth package of sanctions, providing for the disconnection of Sberbank, Rosselkhozbank and Moscow Credit Bank from SWIFT.

Olga Veretennikova, vice-president of the Borsell analytical company, commented in an interview with Izvestia on the EU decision to disconnect Sberbank from the SWIFT international payment system.
