The Russian Interior Ministry has prepared a bill on criminal liability for those who help fraudsters to withdraw money stolen from Russians.

This is reported in a letter from the head of the Interior Ministry’s investigative department, Sergei Lebedev, to Senator Artem Sheikin.

According to RIA Novosti, the agency wants to supplement the Criminal Code with Article 187.1, which provides criminal liability for the transfer, acquisition and use of cards or providing access to them.

The document is already in coordination with the authorities.
