Too Early Consider Introduction of Russian Ruble in Belarus, NBB Chairperson Says

Russian rubles

It is too early to talk about the introduction of a common currency in the Union State of Belarus and Russia, Nadzieja Jermakova, head of the National Bank, told reporters in Minsk on Thursday.

I wouldn't say this is of great interest to us at present, Ms. Jermakova said.

She noted that the Union State should have a constitution before introducing a common currency.

For the time being, there has been no constitution, and therefore it's too early to talk about a common currency, she said.
