Medvedev: Russia's Reaction to Exclusion from SWIFT Banking Would be "Without Limits"


KHMELYOVO VILLAGE (Bryansk Region), January 27, (TASS) – Western nations’ threatens to sanction Russia’s operations through the SWIFT worldwide bank exchange framework will incite Russia’s counter-reaction without cutoff points, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday.

“We’ll watch developments and if such decisions are made, I want to note that our economic reaction and generally any other reaction will be without limits,” he said.

In late August 2014, media reports said the UK had proposed banning Russia from the SWIFT system as a component of an up and coming new round of authorizations against Moscow over its stance on improvements in neighboring Ukraine. Then again, this proposal was not underpinned by the EU nations at the time. After late shelling of the Ukrainian city of Mariupol some western nations again began calling to disengage Russia from SWIFT.

Quick exchange framework

The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT) transmits 1.8 billion exchanges a year, transmitting installment requests worth $6 trillion a day. The framework contains in excess of 10,000 financial organizations from 210 nations.

Under the SWIFT contract, gatherings of parts and clients are situated up in every nation secured by the framework. In Russia, these gatherings are united in the Rosswift association.
