OREANDA-NEWS The State Duma adopted in the second and third readings a law that postpones for a year the resolution of the issue of settlement of obligations on deposits of citizens placed before June 20, 1991 in the Sberbank of the USSR, as well as deposits in state insurance organizations that were opened by citizens before January 1, 1992.

The law adopted by the deputies on Thursday extends from January 1, 2026 to January 1, 2027 the beginning of the law "On the basic cost of the necessary social set", which, in turn, provides for full compensation of deposits in the Sberbank of the USSR.

Earlier, when discussing similar bills in the State Duma, the Financial Market Committee raised the question of introducing a draft law to parliament that would fully settle the issue of obligations on deposits.
