Electronic money can be issued only by bank. Individuals and legal entities can use the electronic money. Legal entities can receive electronic money in exchange for non-cash resources only. Such money can be nominated only in the national currency.

Accordingly, repeated actions in this area are proposed to be punish by a fine from 500 to 1000 minimums.
