The digital ruble will make payments transparent – Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation
One of the main advantages of the digital ruble is to ensure transparency of payments, Dmitry Peskov, special envoy of the Russian president for digital and technological development, said in a conversation with RIA Novosti. According to him, this can be useful, for example, within the framework of programs to combat poverty..
“All conversations and government programs to combat poverty rest on the need to move to a targeted model in order to help those who really need, and not who are formally supposed to,” he explained..
According to Peskov, the digital ruble will help avoid a situation when a household consumes 200,000 rubles a month and at the same time claims a poverty subsidy.
Talking about how the problem of infrastructure for working with the digital ruble can be solved, the special representative noted that there are at least two entities in Russia that reach almost every person: Sberbank and Russian Post.
“I fully admit that receiving a pension and other payments can take place in a situation when a grandmother in Ivanovo comes to the post office and an advanced girl on her device shows her everything and tells her how to do it,” said Peskov.
Earlier it became known that testing of the digital ruble could begin in the first half of 2021.
