The projected increase will be primarily driven by the adoption of the faster payment system (FPS). To attain this, however, all major banks should get connected to the system, which will also need to be properly protected against fraudsters and technical failures.

FPS will boost the development of payment technologies and also significantly increase the proportion of non-cash payments to reach at least 65% by the year end, the Bank of Russia says.
