As a note, the Russian Federation President’s Decree No. 95 dated 05 March 2022 established a temporary procedure for fulfillment by residents of their credit, loan and financial instruments liabilities to foreign lenders related to hostile foreign states, the list of which was approved by the RF Government’s Resolution. Such liabilities shall be settled in Rubles through a type C bank account to be opened by a foreign lender in its name with a Russian credit institution recommended by the resident.
