Sanctions against Russia in general and the Urals in particular

During a special operation to denationalize and demilitarize Ukraine, the Russians tried to smuggle more than 100 million rubles out of the country. This was reported in the Federal Customs Service (FCS) of the Russian Federation.

In the period from February 24 to March 31, 1,078 violations of illegal movement of cash worth a total of 158 million rubles were identified, the Federal Tax Service told Izvestia. Of these, 85% of violations accounted for the export of funds. In total, the Russians tried to smuggle out 104 million rubles, which were not declared at the request of the law or exceeded the limits set from March 2.

“In 90% of cases, the money was taken out by Russian citizens, which is due to their concern for their savings in the aggravated geopolitical situation and sanctions pressure on the country,” – said the first deputy head of the Federal Tax Service Oleg Gubaidulin. According to him, the dynamics are also related to the removal of restrictions caused by the coronavirus and the opening of air travel.

Turkey, the UAE, Israel and Central Asian countries are among the most popular destinations for cash exports, the service added. The customs also clarified that most often they try to transport money in luggage or clothes without concealment, but sometimes they hide the money in the lining or under the insoles of shoes.

EU countries, as well as the United States, Canada, Japan and a number of other countries, have imposed tough sanctions against Russia over Russia’s special operation in Ukraine. Sanction pressure on Russia has continued since the early 2000s and has intensified in recent months. Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated that their goal is to abolish Russia. Due to the imposition of tough sanctions against Russia and domestic financial institutions, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation has established a temporary procedure for cash transactions and limited the amount of issuance of foreign currency deposits until September 9, 2022. As a result, the client will be able to withdraw up to 10 thousand US dollars in cash, and the remaining funds – in rubles at the market rate on the day of issue.
