Elvira Nabiullina denied the information.
The Bank of Russia does not intend to collect information on individual transfers from controlled organizations and establish total control over such operations. This was conveyed by the Head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina, during a speech on the Russia 1 TV channel.
- The banker had to make such a statement due to the fact that information appeared in the media about the plans of the Bank of Russia to start collecting data from controlled organizations on transfers between individuals in the Russian Federation. RBC wrote about this, citing sources.
- Elvira Nabiullina draws attention to the fact that the Central Bank does interact with some banks, where the risk of using the platform’s tools to transfer funds to online casinos and other illegal sites is identified. Support from regulators, he argues, allows these market participants “to effectively regulate their work.”
- We will remind, interlocutors of RBC reported that the Bank of Russia requires controlled organizations to provide data on money transfers between individuals. Representatives of the regulator denied this information.
- According to bankers, the Central Bank will limit itself to collecting anonymous data if there is a risk of using controlled organizations for illegal transactions.
