State Bonds Via Euroclear

Investors in Russia's ruble-denominated government bonds should be able to settle transactions through Euroclear Bank by the second half of next year, Federal Service for Financial Markets chief Dmitry Pankin said Tuesday.

President Dmitry Medvedev is likely to sign a law allowing the creation of a central depositary by the end of the year, and regulations will be in place allowing the bonds, known as OFZs, to be traded via Euroclear about six to nine months later, Pankin said


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
