What did Krasnov say? According to the head of the Prosecutor General's Office, the agency advocates the introduction of the digital ruble as an additional form of money. He added that the main advantage of virtual currency is increasing the transparency of settlements and, accordingly, reducing the risk of corruption and money laundering.

What had happened before? On Thursday, December 9, was mentioned that Krasnov announced the development of laws in Russia that will regulate the circulation of cryptocurrencies. They aim to legally enable the arrest and confiscation of virtual assets that are in illegal circulation.

The Prosecutor General also noted that the agency supports the introduction of the concept of “cryptocurrency” into the criminal law space.
