MOSCOW, April 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed Russian government and the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) to develop “a mechanism of receiving information from foreign banks about monetary funds and valuables” owned by Russian state officials at these banks. These are crediting institutions situated in foreign countries. The decree to this effect was formulated in a national anti-corruption plan for 2014-2015 approved on Friday.
Information requested from foreign banks can also include facts of “possession and use of foreign financial instruments by public servants.”
This information “can be provided to the CBR by foreign lending organisations through conclusion of agreements on information exchange between authorised Russian authorities and law enforcement agencies in foreign countries,” the document noted.
A report on results of fulfilling the instruction should be submitted to the president before March 1, 2015.
