In 1860, Russian Emperor Alexander II signed a decree establishing the State Bank. According to the charter, he was supposed to contribute to the “revitalization of trade and the strengthening of the monetary credit system”. Its first manager was the famous banker, entrepreneur and benefactor Alexander Ludwigovich Stiglitz. In the early years, the State Bank was mainly engaged in short-term commercial lending. In the 1920s, the bank took an active part in reviving the country's financial system and developing commodity-money relations. During the years of world wars, his activity was focused on covering military expenses, supplying troops and the population with money.
