VTB will launch in autumn transfers to CIS countries by phone number through the Bank of Russia's Rapid Payments System in a pilot mode, said Anatoly Pechatnikov, Deputy Chairman of VTB's Management Board. VTB transfers will be sent in rubles, and the correspondent bank will convert them to the national currency. The service will be available to all clients of the bank till the end of the year. In early July, the provider of remittances in rubles abroad through SBP became Tinkoff, which plans a mass launch of the service at the end of the summer.
