This is happening due to Russia facing increasing difficulties in making cross-border payments. Foreign banks refuse to work with Russian companies due to the threat of secondary US sanctions.

At the same time, trade turnover between Russia and China last year reached a record $240 billion thanks to Chinese imports of Russian oil and exports of cars, industrial equipment and electronics.


The “Ministry of Finance” wrote that China’s largest bank ICBC, as well as three other credit institutions – China Citic Bank, Industrial Bank, Bank of Taizhou and Bank of China – stopped accepting payments in Russia in yuan.
