The limit of 10 thousand US dollars or the same amount in euros, valid until September 9 of this year, for withdrawing cash foreign currency from a foreign currency account or deposit is also preserved. Citizens who have not yet had time to use this opportunity since March 9, 2022, can only withdraw money in foreign currency that was received on an account or deposit before March 9, 2022. The remaining funds can still be received in rubles at the market rate on the day of withdrawal.
