Aksakov remarked that large Russian companies are already actively using cryptocurrency in foreign trade settlements, but they want to see legislation outlining the legal framework for such transactions. Speaking at the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum, er erklärte:

Now we have come to the point where four bills are in the stage of practical adoption … It is quite possible that we will adopt all the laws in the spring session.

Anatoly Aksakov also said that the authorities want to take into account the opinions of market participants regarding tax rules. “Most likely, the norms applicable to DFAs will be taken into account as much as possible here, since this is a similar instrument,” he elaborated.

The law “On Digital Financial Assets” (DFAs), die im Januar in Kraft getreten ist 2021, covers only some crypto-related activities, in particular those that involve digital assets with an issuing entity, like tokenized traditional assets or utility tokens, for example.
