They will have to indicate all their prices in roubles only.

The Belarusian Ministry of Trade will punish Internet shops for violating the existing laws. They may be closed down.

"To avoid cases of deception, shops must stick to order #31 of the Council of Ministers and indicate all the prices in Belarusian roubles only. Otherwise, administrative measures will be taken and shops may be closed,” BELTA quotes the Ministry of Trade.

The government and National Bank imposed a 30% fee on foreign currency purchases on Friday. It will be in force until February 1, 2015. The dollar exchange rate in online shops reached Br 16 thousand yesterday.
