As Krasnov explained, the digital ruble will increase the transparency of settlements, making it more difficult to carry out corruption schemes and launder money.
“One of the solutions to the problem of criminalization of the digital space as a whole could be the introduction by the Bank of Russia of the digital ruble as a new additional form of money. We fully support this idea. Many countries are following this path today. The main advantage of the digital currency of the Central Bank is to significantly increase the transparency of settlements, and, consequently, reduce the risks of corruption and money laundering. In other words, modern technologies in themselves provide new opportunities for combating existing criminal threats, “- said the Prosecutor General of Russia.
