Earlier, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said that US and EU sanctions against Russia would not harm the crypto industry. According to Zhao, if access to large international crypto exchanges is blocked, Russians will be able to use small trading platforms located in Russia.
The head of Binance added that the crypto exchange strictly follows international law and implements sanctions. The trading platform does not consider it right to restrict access to its infrastructure to all Russian users, however, it will do so if such a requirement comes from regulatory authorities.
