29.05.2018 - Embassy Press Officer's Comments on the UK Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act

Q: Could you comment on the UK Sanctions and Anti-Money-Laundering Act (SAMLA) which has been recently enacted? A: First, it must be stressed that money laundering, corruption, tax evasion and other related cross-border crimes constitute global problems affecting all nations. They destabilize economies, violate human rights, create social tensions and undermine justice and democracy. Unfortunately, the situation in this field has been deteriorating over the past few decades. Hence genuine and sincere efforts to fight money laundering, including through the adoption of appropriate legislation, should be welcomed and appreciated. We believe it is especially important in the case of the UK, whose financial markets are extensively used by criminals to legalize their proceeds.

25.05.2018 - Embassy Press Officer’s response to a media question about the investigation of the death of Nikolay Glushkov

Q: How would you comment on the investigation by British authorities of the death of Mr Nikolay Glushkov? A: Unfortunately, British authorities continue to refuse to cooperate on the investigation of the mysterious death on 12 March in London of former Deputy Director General of “Aeroflot” Mr Nikolay Glushkov. On 24 April, the Embassy sent to the Home Office an official request of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation on legal assistance in the criminal case on the death of Mr Glushkov. However, there has been no reply. This amounts to a disregard by the British side of their obligations under the European Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters of 1959.
