MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Doubtful operations of clients started flowing from small credit institutions with revoked licenses to major banks as evidenced by growing number of banks’ notifications to the Federal Financial Monitoring Service, Deputy Director of the Service Galina Bobrysheva said on Friday.
"The shadow economy is migrating from banks with revoked licenses to major banks. The number of notifications increased from the year beginning and totals 3 mln. This is related to the fact that such clients were not earlier in our field of vision," Bobrysheva said.
The number of bank notifications about suspicious operations of clients doubled year-on-year, she added.
"We understand this is not related to the shadow economy growth. It is most likely to be within the same limits. This is related to the fact that high risk clients working in banks with canceled licenses were indeed outside our field of vision," Bobrysheva said. The Service is mainly receiving information regarding transit and cash operations from banks, she added.
