Cbanker: Banks from several countries want into СRussiaТs SWIFTТ

SKOLKOVO, Jun 17 (PRIME) -- Banks of several countries plan to become members of the Russian analogue of the SWIFT interbank messaging system, and some of them have already carried out pilot connections, Central Bank Chairwoman Elvira Nabiullina said on June 15 in a conference.

УWe are constantly hearing the threats that this or that country, including Russia, may be cut off from SWIFT, so, our obvious reaction was to develop our own system. We started active development after 2014, and we created a system for exchange of financial messages,Ф she said.

It uses the same standards as SWIFT, so a bank doesnТt have to change its internal systems completely. Not only banks can join it, but large companies as well. Currently, about 18% of Russian financial massages are going through the system, she said.

УIt is open for external connections, and we are improving it for our trade partners if they want to join it. This work is already going on, and banks of several countries plant to join it. WeТve already had some test connections. We think that it will develop further,Ф she said.
