Seeking to tout the advantages of his enterprise’s online banking systems, Sberbank CEO German Gref invited one of the services' active users, a farmer named Andrei Bukarev, to a presentation.

Bukarev, whose business accounting is entirely run online on system introduced by Sberbank, brought a 4kg block of cheese as a gift to the host, but Gref adamantly refused to accept it as a present and offered to buy it instead — using the Sberbank Online system.

According to LifeNews, the entire transaction was conducted almost immediately and by the book as the farmer sent an invoice to Gref via his tablet, earning about $90 in the process.

"This should make both the minister of finance and the tax revenue service happy," the CEO chuckled.
