Economist Delyagin warned Russians with deposits on the next

Expert Mikhail Delyagin said what awaits the Russians who hold deposits in rubles.

The famous Russian economist Mikhail Delyagin, in an interview with the media, made a forecast on a new crisis which could arise in Russia.

On the Aurora YouTube channel, he explained that a collapse in the US stock market cannot be ruled out.

In the event of such a development of events, the whole world would find itself in a crisis, which could affect Russia.

The expert said that the fall of the US market will inevitably lead to an increase in the value of the dollar, and among the holders of ruble deposits in Russia might start to panic.

The ruble can & # 8220; sink a little & # 8221; in price, predicts the economist, because all products on the shelves of Russian stores have a value component that is expressed in dollars.

& # 8220; Therefore, it will seem to many that this currency exchange would be the right decision & # 8221;, – predicts Delyagin, adding that buying the US currency could become a fatal mistake.

The reason is that after the rise, the dollar will start to fall in prices, and then its indicators will normalize.

In the end, the only winners will be the Russians who are not inclined to panic. They will be able to maintain the same level of their savings.

In favor of the normalization of the dollar, he argues that the state of the US economy, which is in a recession, and its recovery at his previous positions could take many years.

Media: Central Bank decided to control Russians' card transfers

Media: The Central Bank decided to check the card transfers of the Russians

The regulator requested all data on transfers of natural and legal persons from credit institutions.

The media have learned that Russian banks and other credit agencies have received a letter from the Central Bank, which contains a request for information on monitoring customer transfers from card to card.

In addition, the Central Bank requires to assess the risks that arise in connection with such operations and to transfer their lists by June of this year. In the latter it is mandatory to indicate information about the sender and recipient.

RIA & # 8220; News & # 8221; with reference to the text of the document, reports that the Bank of Russia also requested data on transfer control mechanisms, the amount of commissions that organizations receive for them, as well as data on the limits of transfers of funds. money.

Finally, judging by the document, the Central Bank is interested in how banks identify & # 8220; dropper & # 8221; & # 8211; legal persons and citizens through whom illegally withdrawn money has passed.

According to the agency's source, Russian financial services are discussing the idea of ​​collecting data on beneficiaries. In the event that this initiative receives legislative support, then for the transfer, customers will only have to indicate their card number.

However, such innovation will require both changes in the parameters of payment systems and in the work of credit institutions themselves, he believes.

In turn, & # 8220; Kommersant & # 8221 ;, after reading the document, reports that the response to the request must be provided to the Central Bank by October 18. In response to a request for the publication, the Central Bank said that the purpose of the document is not to minimize such transactions (P2P transfers), which currently constitute a significant part of the payments market.

They called the study the risk management activities of banks that accompany such transfers.

The experts intend to study and identify existing best practices, and prepare recommendations for everyone as needed.

However, not all market participants positively welcomed the intention of the Bank of Russia. A number of them are willing to refuse customer service.

According to Alexander Pogudin, a member of the directors of the RNCO Payment Center, there are simply no effective methods of controlling transfers if the service is provided by a customer.

Bank & # 8230; is deprived of the possibility of assessing the risks of legalization “, & # 8211; believes the expert, adding that they have made the decision to refuse such a service.

And the head of the RTM group Evgeny Tsarev admitted that this type of transfer is indeed often used by fraudsters.

As an alternative, he called transfers through the central bank's fast payment system, which has a different architecture, and the bank can more easily monitor the funds that individuals transfer to each other.

& # 8220; In the SBP everything is more complicated in this regard, there is still a mobile bank, a device, a phone number & # 8221;, & # 8211; Tsarev said, adding that if blocked all cards will become unavailable which is not possible with P2P transfers.

However, if the SBP gains momentum and such measures enforced, then problems will appear en masse not only for fraudsters, but also for ordinary citizens.

As Topnews wrote previously, earlier the Bank of Russia expressed a scenario that a global financial crisis could occur in 2023.

FT: Putin's statement lowered global gas prices

FT: declaration Putin was bowled over by global gas prices

Journalists noted the drop in prices after Putin's remarks about his willingness to influence them.

Inosmi drew attention to recent statements by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said he was ready to stabilize rising energy prices.

According to the Financial Times, the Russian leader's remarks preceded a sharp drop in the global market.

Recall that Putin said that the work of price stabilization should be based on a commercial basis, taking into account the interests of all parties.

According to the Russian leader, soaring gas prices could lead to a restriction of industrial activity and a sharp rise in inflation.

Vladimir Putin supported Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak's proposal to increase gas sales on Gazprom's e-commerce platform not through the European spot market, and through the St. Petersburg Stock Exchange.

After that, gas prices in the market started to fall.

According to trading information, gas prices in Europe, after an all-time high of $ 1,937 per thousand cubic meters on Wednesday, have lost over $ 600 per day, and are also down 10% compared to the estimated price for Tuesday.

Nevertheless, respondents & # 8220; Izvestia & # 8221; Analysts believe gas prices could climb to $ 2,500 this week in the midst of the approaching winter.

Experts predict that the next season could get even colder than a year ago.

In addition, gas may increase prices due to increased consumption in China, decreased supplies in Europe, as well as due to the Stock market panic.

The rise in gas prices in Europe began in early August. At that time, the price of the thousand cubic meters was around $ 515.

Several factors may have caused the price increase & # 8211; depletion of European underground gas storage facilities, shortage of supply from suppliers and high demand from Asia.

Earlier, TopNews wrote that five European countries had called for an investigation into the record rise in gas prices.

The President of the Russian Federation called the situation hysterical and confusing.

Five EU countries & # 8211; France, Spain, Czech Republic, Romania and Greece & # 8211; issued a joint statement.

In their speech, the states announced their decision to investigate the reasons for the record rise in gas prices in Europe.

Bloomberg reporter Javier Blas wrote on Twitter that countries have also been urged to develop general rules regarding gas reserves in order to mitigate price spikes.

States also proposed to increase bargaining power by strengthening coordination, reforming the electricity market in Europe and underlined the need for energy independence by diversifying the energy supply sector and reducing Europe & # 39; s dependence on natural gas exporting countries.

Against this background, Russian President Vladimir Putin called the gas price situation in Europe hysterical and confusing.

He stressed the need for sustainable development of the energy industry, and also drew attention to the, in his view, the underestimated problem of climate change .

& # 8220; You see what's going on in Europe, there is hysteria and some sort of confusion in the markets & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; the president said in a meeting with the government.

He said the transition to alternative energy sources should be smooth and Russia has every chance of not making such mistakes.

& # 8220; We see what certain unbalanced decisions, unbalanced development and abrupt reshuffle lead to & # 8221; & # 8211; he said.

Remember that in recent weeks in Europe, the price of gas has risen sharply.

In early August, securities for the fuel supply were trading at around $ 515 per 1000 cubic meters, then a month later, prices rose to $ 614, and at the end of September soared twice.

Earlier, TopNews wrote that the first channel of & # 8220; Nord Stream-2 & # 8221; is filled with gas.
