The Government of the Russian Federation coordinated the order and schedule of the Bank of Russia to withdraw from the Moscow Exchange capital, Sergey Shvetsov, Deputy Chairman of the Bank of Russia, informed journalists on Tuesday.

According to him, these proposals may be submitted to the President on Wednesday, November 7th.
