A preliminary assessment will be conducted according to the new standards of the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF). The core team of evaluators will arrive in Belarus in March to see how Belarus complies with the standards.
Belarus has always supported the fight against money-laundering and financing of terrorism. The country is an active participant of the international system to counter these threats, Leonid Anfimov said.
The EAG works in accordance with standards of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which is now closely interested in the problem of virtual assets. “Belarus is slightly ahead of our other countries in regulations on this matter. This is why the Belarusian experience is very interesting,” said the official.
The spokesman said: “Officially via channels established as part of cooperation between the Belarusian and Russian border services the State Border Committee has received no information that an international border crossing has been opened in Krasnaya Gorka."
