Return of Soviet time deposits still on agenda in Belarus

RAUBICHI, 4 April (BelTA) – It is premature to stop discussing the return of Soviet time deposits in Belarus, said Chairwoman of the Board of the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus (NBRB) Nadezhda Yermakova on 4 April.

“We shouldn’t remove the item from the agenda. People should get their deposits back. When it can be done is another matter,” she said.

The official spoke in favor of a cautious approach and discouraged populist decisions. The return of Soviet time deposits should begin only after the necessary financial resources are available, she added.
