Can Russia Use Crypto to Evade Sanctions?
An ACFCS Emerging Risks Interview
In the inaugural interview of the ACFCS Emerging Risks series, we sit down with Ari Redbord, Head of Legal and Government Affairs at TRM Labs, to explore a critically important question in the financial crime arena – can Russian entities and oligarchs targeted by sanctions use cryptocurrencies to evade asset freezes and move funds? As the world tightens the financial net on Russia, will bad actors spill over into the crypto realm?
The ACFCS Emerging Risks series features interviews with thought leaders and change-makers who are tackling the latest challenges and most pressing threats across the financial crime spectrum.
