The US Democratic Senators Urged the Worlds Largest Banks to Reveal their Links with the Rich Russians Associated with the Russian President
May 8, 2018 11:41


The US democratic senators Sheldon Whitehouse and Jeanne Shaheen urged the world’s largest banks to reveal their links with the “rich Russians associated with the Russian President Vladimir Putin”. This was reported by Reuters with a reference to their letter.

As the agency notes, the senators wrote a letter with the goal of increasing the pressure not only on people from the so-called “Kremlin list”, but also on financial institutions. The senators said that if they did not receive the requested information, they would request a government investigation.

The letter was sent to the three US banks: Bank of America Corp, JPMorgan Chase and Citibank, as well as to European banks: Barclays, Deutsche Bank, UBS, HSBC and Credit Suisse. “Given their wealth and attitude toward their state, many magnates in Russia either have political influence or are highly susceptible to it,” the message of Whitehouse and Shaheen said. Each bank was asked if it conducted a five-year check on the existence of accounts controlled by someone from the “Kremlin list”. If the answer is positive, then the senators are waiting for more detailed information, if not, then they are going to find out what the leaders of the organizations did to reveal their links with Russian businessmen.
