Putin instructed the Prosecutor General’s Office to stop illegal cross-border transfers of digital assets

Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to take additional measures to suppress illegal cross-border transfers of digital financial assets. He stated this at a meeting of the board of the Prosecutor General’s Office.

“Criminal elements are using these digital financial assets more and more often, and this certainly needs to be paid close attention with colleagues from other departments, including Financial Monitoring,” he said.

Recall that in February Rosfinmonitoring reported to Putin on the creation of a  service for tracking cryptocurrency transactions .

Also, the State Duma called on to pay “special attention to the regulation of virtual assets and the fight against information threats” due to the fact that cybercriminals allegedly increasingly use cryptocurrencies and the darknet.
