** In case of withdrawal of money from the account before the maturity date, the account becomes a current account and the right to interest disappears. The balance of the current account is updated at whichever rate is lower than the CBRT buying rate on the date the account was opened, and the CBRT buying rate on the date the account was closed. Therefore, in case of closing before the maturity date, there may be a decrease in the principal balance depending on the decrease in the exchange rate.

*** Depending on your request at the account opening, the account can be closed at the end of the maturity period, or it can be renewed with the same maturity.
