In mid-June, the Bank of Russia clarified that Russian residents should not be credited to foreign brokerage accounts with funds from the sale of securities without the permission of a government commission under the Russian Ministry of Finance. At the same time, the department issued instructions, which indicated all the necessary documents for submission. So, for example, it was necessary to draw up an application for issuing permission to conclude a transaction in a free form, informing the purpose, subject and content of the transaction.
At the same time, the head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, separately emphasized that if coupons are credited and dividends without selling papers, then permission is not needed for this. Later, as part of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), she said that the government commission under the Ministry of Finance allowed funds from the sale of foreign securities to be credited to foreign accounts of Russians. However, official confirmation of the Ministry of Finance was received only today.

So, according to RBC sources, the American broker Interactive Brokers, popular with Russians, will stop accepting rubles to replenish customer accounts from July 31. According to technical support, it is impossible to convert the national currency into dollars, open or increase ruble positions right now.
