Russia stopped minting pennies

В России перестали чеканить копейки

Russia stopped minting coins of less than the ruble, according to “WORLD 24”.

At the request of the Central Bank, this will result in substantial savings to the budget.

According to official data, the turnover is now more than six billion rubles and kopecks. And about five billion stays in the pockets of Russians who don’t pay.

The Central Bank asked the banks not to refuse to accept such coins. With the help of credit organizations, these pennies come back into circulation.
