July 2, 2021

Vladimir Putin signed Federal Law On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation.

Under the Federal Law, the Russian Federal Taxation Service is authorised to keep a list of foreign nationals transferring funds for the benefit of illegal lottery operators, illegal lottery agents or illegal gambling organisers and to post this list on its website on the Internet telecommunications network.

The Law requires lending organisations to refuse to carry out transactions to transfer funds, including electronic money, intended for foreign payment service providers which are included on the list specified above.

The Russian Federal Taxation Service is also authorised to post, on its website, a list of foreign banks that provide services to persons receiving payments from payment cards, who are included on the list of those who are banned from receiving transferred funds.
