Smart, Swift, Secure: What is Russia's Digital Ruble?

In December 2021, the creation of a prototype of the digital ruble platform was completed, and 12 banks expressed their desire to take part in its testing. Based on the results, a strategy for ushering in the digital currency will be developed.
