So, from there I learned that with a Russian card it would still be possible to shake out money. Local Russians who have Arabic cards make money by selling rubles for dirhams and vice versa. Thus, we met with Grigory, sent him rubles to his Russian card, and he thereby handed us dirhams … For the exchange, he takes some small percentage.
At the time of the exchange, the Central Bank offered the following exchange rate: one dirham for 18 rubles.
