The press service of the State Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation in Moscow denied the TASS information received from a source in this law-enforcement structure about the mining equipment withdrawal and 2 billion rubles during the raids on the Sadovod market and in the Moscow shopping center.

The law enforcement officers assured that they had conducted “verification activities at mass gathering facilities for foreign citizens” as part of their daily work.

“We separately declare that the reports … that police searched the territory of some Moscow markets, during which money in the amount of more than 2 billion rubles was seized, as well as equipment for mining cryptocurrency, are not true” , reported in the police.

Recall that recently in Russia, at the legislative level, it was forbidden to launder revenues using cryptocurrencies: the plenum of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation established responsibility for such actions as financial transactions and transactions committed to legalize illegally obtained funds.
