Disconnection from the SWIFT system will encourage Russian banks to use alternative financial systems. This assumption was expressed in a conversation with Parliamentary Newspaper by the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Economic Policy Mikhail Delyagin.

Since June 14, the European Union has disconnected three Russian banks from the SWIFT interbank system. The sanctions list includes Sberbank, Rosselkhozbank and Moscow Credit Bank. Earlier, VTB, VEB.RF, Promsvyazbank, Sovcombank, Novikombank, Rossiya and Otkritie banks were disconnected from the international financial system.

“There are alternative financial systems. When the first Russian banks were disconnected from the SWIFT system, they did not connect to alternative systems. This caused a shock. Maybe Sberbank will be more efficient and will be more responsibly vilified towards the problems of its clients. Disconnecting from the SWIFT system will not affect internal financial settlements in any way. Only for external. For example, banks will be able to introduce additional commissions on foreign currency accounts,” the parliamentarian explained.

Earlier, in a conversation with Parlamentskaya Gazeta, financial expert Mikhail Belyaev, Candidate of Economic Sciences, expressed the opinion that Russian banks can easily do without the SWIFT system.
