Meeting of interdepartmental working group on countering illegal financial transactions

February 4, 2021, Moscow

Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office Anton Vaino chaired a regular meeting (via videoconference) of the interdepartmental working group on countering illegal financial transactions.

The meeting participants, including presidential plenipotentiary envoys to the federal districts, discussed the performance of interdepartmental working groups to counter illegal financial transactions in the federal districts.

In 2021, these groups’ priority will be to coordinate the authorised bodies in the field of combating the illegal use of government funds allocated for the implementation of national and federal projects, as well as strengthen the rule of law in financial affairs affecting people’s property rights and interests.

The working groups have been recommended to specifically focus on the development of measures aimed at suppressing unlicensed investment activities in the financial market, including pyramid schemes; fraudulent actions with people’s pension savings; theft of funds using bank cards, mobile devices and the internet; and illegal spending of funds allocated for the construction and overhaul of apartment blocks.

The participants agreed on additional measures of information, analytical and methodological support for the regional groups’ operation, their interaction with the interdepartmental working group and federal government bodies.
