The leadership of Russian banks Sberbank and VTB have made a principled decision to start servicing the population of the Crimea.
This was reported by Anatoly Aksakov, Chairman of the State Duma Financial Market Committee. He said that from July 1, a project in the Crimea will start that will allow using biometric data to access banking programs.
Thus, any resident of the peninsula who has passed the procedure of biometrics can become a full user of Internet services of the two largest financial and credit organizations Russia.
Accordingly, the proposals of Sberbank and VTB will be available to all. Legal entities and businessmen will be able to use digital signatures for work.
It is recalled that the Federation Council announced its readiness to support the idea of imposing a leading responsibility for companies operating in Russia, but fulfilling US sanctions.
As Deputy Chairman of the Council of Federation Yevgeny Bushmin , these measures may apply to cellular operators, banks and large network companies that do not work in the Crimea.
Recall, biometric data are information characterizing various physiological and biological (19659001) These include fingerprints, the retina of the eye, or the geometry of the hand, as well as the way in which the signature is reproduced. Regarding the work on the peninsula, the former head of VTB Andrei Kostin said that the bank will not work in the Crimea, as it does not want to introduce anti-Russian sanctions against the credit institution. In addition, those organizations that are already working on the peninsula, are coping well with the population, explained Costin. But now the situation has changed somewhat and VTB plans to start a business in the Crimea.
