The topic was considered at a meeting of the section on the problems of neutralizing internal threats to national security of the Scientific Council under the Security Council.
It is noted that the withdrawal of financial resources from the state economy, their laundering and investment in the economies of other countries is a real threat to economic security.
At the same time, the process of returning criminal assets from abroad is a significant problem for law enforcement agencies. According to the experts of the Security Council, its solution will be facilitated by the development of international cooperation and practical interaction of the competent authorities, despite the existing differences in the domestic legal framework and legal procedures on the identification of criminal assets, their freezing, seizure and confiscation.
Attention is drawn to the need for timely identification of new mechanisms of legalization (laundering) of proceeds from crime, and financing of terrorism, based on continuously developing means of electronic payments, including the use of cryptocurrencies.
Additional measures have been developed to improve the effectiveness of measures for blocking (freezing) funds and other property of organizations and individuals involved in terrorist activities.
Proposals were also made to improve the federal and departmental regulatory framework governing the procedure for conducting operational-search measures and investigative actions aimed at opening channels and mechanisms for money laundering and financing terrorism, as well as documenting illegal activities and forming an evidence base.
