On the temporarily occupied territories, the russians are still unable to transfer the population to the “ruble zone”, although the locals prefer the hryvnia.
Also, in the Kherson region and the occupied territories of the Zaporizhia region, entrepreneurs refuse to take rubles, although there is no demand for the currency. Russian soldiers are still trying to exchange rubles for hryvnias.
The situation on the front line also does not affect the introduction of the ruble, but the locals understand that after the liberation of the territories, the currency of occupiers will finally become candy bars.
It should be noted that earlier the occupiers planned to transfer the occupied territories to the “ruble zone” by the end of 2022.
