The Verkhovna Rada today as a whole adopted draft law No. 8008 to protect the financial system of Ukraine from the actions of Russia.
People's deputy Yaroslav Zheleznyak reports this in Telegram.
The document provides for the protection of the Ukrainian financial system from the actions of Russians and residents of the aggressor state.
Yes, the draft law provides for:
preventing persons who are citizens of the Russian Federation from leading and managing subjects of primary financial monitoring;
expansion of the list of high-risk clients by citizens and legal entities who are residents of the Russian Federation, and/or whose activities are related to it;
establishment of an obligation for subjects of primary financial monitoring to report to the State Financial Monitoring Service on threshold transactions with subjects related to Russia.
According to Zheleznyak, the Rada in the second reading adopted amendments 16, 19 and 22, which shortened the term of the status of PEP (politically significant persons) from life to three years after taking office.
"For the second reading, an amendment was removed, when persons who have significant economic and political weight in public life (oligarchs) are classified as high-risk business relations," the people's deputy added.
