A year after the refusal of Russian banks from SWIFT, citizens still have at least seven ways to transfer money abroad, Izvestia writes with reference to market participants and experts.
Another way is to send funds from the bank’s mobile application through Unistream to the CIS countries, Europe and Asia. The Golden Crown system works in a similar way.
SWIFT transfers can still be sent from any credit institution that has not fallen under the blocking sanctions of the West.
You can also use cryptocurrency. For a minimum commission, it can be exchanged for cash at any “semi-legal” exchanger.
