Bans on foreign property, bank accounts for officials

Putin urges ban on officials’ foreign bank accounts

As part of the anti-corruption crusade, President Vladimir Putin has submitted bill to the lower house of Parliament to prohibit Russian state officials, their spouses and underage children from holding foreign bank accounts.



The ban would apply to all high-ranking officials as well as employees of state funds and corporations, and members of the Central Bank’s board. An exception will be made for civil servants working as official Russian representatives abroad.



If the proposed law comes into effect, civil servants will be given three months to get rid of their foreign savings and stocks. Those who fail to do so will lose their jobs.

Putin Moves to Ban Foreign Bank Accounts for Officials

MOSCOW, February 12 (RIA Novosti) – President Vladimir Putin has submitted a bill to the State Duma prohibiting Russian officials from holding bank accounts abroad or owning foreign-issued shares and bonds, according to information posted on the Duma’s website.

"This ban applies to persons who hold government positions in Russia, the Prosecutor General's first and other deputies, members of the Central Bank's board of directors, government officials in the regions, federal civil servants and officials at state-run corporations, foundations and other organizations established under federal law, who can only be appointed or dismissed from their posts by decision of the President, the Government or the Prosecutor General of Russia," the president's bill says.

Putin and the government have had their sights on apparatchiks' foreign assets for some time, as part of the wider effort to stamp out Russia's rampant corruption.

State Duma factions unite in move to ban state officials from owning foreign property

Russian MPs have proposed a ban on civil servants owning property abroad, including securities and bank deposits. The move is backed by the four main Duma factions: United Russia, Fair Russia, Communists and Liberal Democrats.

The bill draft states that all federal and municipal officials (including the President, Prime Minister and members of parliament) and their spouses and children cannot open accounts in overseas banks, or own foreign real estate and securities.

The MPs suggest that violating this regulation should be held criminally responsible and punished with a three-year ban from holding public office, and between 5 and 10 million rubles ($150,000 – $300,000) in fines or up to five years in prison.

An initial draft of the bill also orders civil servants to disclose ownership of foreign property, and sell it off within six months. The law would apply to inherited property and even to individuals leaving state service, effective up to three years post-resignation for both ex-officials and their families.

Duma gives first nod on foreign property ban for state officials and their families

Russia’s Lower House approved the first reading of a bill that forbids a broad circle of civil servants and state officials as well as their spouses and underage children to own property abroad.

The approved amendments to the existing law “On Countering Corruption” and the Criminal Code were passed by 437 MPs with no one voting against and just one abstention.

According to the draft law, the ban applies to civil servants of all levels, members of Parliament, persons undergoing military service, employees of the Interior Ministry, Federal Penal Service, Federal Drug Control Service, Investigation Committee, prosecutors’ offices and customs. The limitation also spreads to the spouses and underage children of the listed groups.

The officials cannot own real estate, bank accounts and securities.

Lower House considers automatic ousting of MPs for failure to declare all property

Following a string of scandals over Duma deputies’ property and businesses one lawmaker is suggesting of sacking MPS if they cheat on their property declarations.

Sergey Ivanov of the Liberal Democratic Party has submitted a draft bill to the Lower House that says providing false or incomplete information on income and property declarations becomes grounds for early termination of parliamentarians in both of the lower and upper houses.

Ivanov told the press that despite since 2010 the law already obliges parliamentarians to report the property and income of themselves and their family members, there is no punishment for failing to do so.

The current amendments prompt legal action in cases when the real disclosed assets’ size or annual income exceeds the declared ones by ten percent or more.

The legislative move is prompted by a string of scandals in which several MPs have already lost their seats. Last year deputies from the majority United Russia and the leftist opposition Fair Russia had to leave the Lower House over running businesses while officially pursuing a political career – which is against the law in Russia.

Excellent ideas. Maybe a bit strong to make it all encompassing though. Perhaps just limiting it to higher offices?

Senior Russian Lawmaker Quits Over US Property Scandal

MOSCOW, February 20 (RIA Novosti) – The head of the Russian parliament’s ethics committee, Vladimir Pekhtin, gave up his seat on Wednesday amid accusations he owns undeclared properties in the United States.

Opposition figurehead and anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny posted documents online earlier this month that he said proved the veteran lawmaker from the ruling United Russia party owned undeclared luxury properties in Miami, Florida worth over $2 million. Pekhtin says the properties belong to his son.

“I have taken the not particularly easy decision to give up my seat,” Pekhtin told the State Duma on Wednesday. “I do not want the shadow of ungrounded accusations to fall on our party.”

The move follows Pekhtin's resignation last week as head of the Duma’s ethics commission.

Wave of Resignations Foreseen in Duma




MOSCOW – The resignation of senior United Russia lawmaker Vladimir Pekhtin following accusations from opposition leader Alexei Navalny that he owned undeclared property in the U.S. triggered speculation that more lawmakers would quit their seats, throwing the ruling party into crisis.

Pundits said Thursday that with lawmakers facing an increasing barrage of incriminating evidence from opposition activists, the Kremlin would try to clean up United Russia — before reputational damage could affect the country's top leadership.

On Friday the Duma will consider a resignation claim from United Russia Deputy Anatoly Lomakin, who announced his decision to leave the Duma a few hours after Pekhtin's speech. Lomakin may become the fourth United Russia deputy to recently quit the Duma after Pekhtin, Vasily Tolstopytov, who quit Tuesday, and Alexei Knyshov, who left in October.

"Sooner or later the Kremlin will have to do away with United Russia because it has turned into a burden," said Yury Korgunyuk, an analyst with the INDEM think tank. "It used to be an instrument of control, and now it's an instrument of discreditation and shame and the Kremlin understands that," he said.

Federation Council Vice Speaker Svetlana Orlova said Thursday that Pekhtin's resignation symbolized a policy of self-clarification of the ruling party.

"President Vladimir Putin is gradually implementing the goals that he stated during his campaign. The recent events and criminal cases on embezzlement in the Defense Ministry, as well as a number of other high-profile corruption cases, demonstrate the authorities' tough position on this issue," she told Interfax.

Russian MPs May Resign Over Proposed Foreign Accounts Ban

MOSCOW, March 27 (RIA Novosti) - Valentina Matviyenko, the speaker of the upper chamber of the Russian parliament, said on Wednesday that several current Federation Council members are ready to resign if a bill banning officials and members of parliament from holding accounts in foreign banks is passed.

“Some Federation Council members have already resigned, while several others are considering this possibility,” she told journalists.

The bill was passed in the first reading by the lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, on February 22. It must pass two more readings in the Duma, be approved by the Federation Council and signed by the president to become law.

The speaker said she is currently meeting with council members who might be affected by the ban.

Putin Presses Officials on Income, Expenses

MOSCOW, April 2 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees on Tuesday to help implement laws obliging state officials to declare their income and expenses, in a bid to crack down on corruption.

State officials will have to submit information concerning their acquisition of real estate, land, cars, valuables and shares, as well as information about their property abroad, and will have to explain the sources of the income which used to buy such acquisitions.

“There will be a single document, a declaration of both income and expenses," Kremlin chief of staff Sergei Ivanov said, "and each state official will have to give information on income and expenses for the previous year.”

State officials and heads of state corporations who fail to submit information on real estate they own abroad will be sacked from their posts, he warned.

“I would like to say again that to own real estate abroad is not prohibited, but an applicant must declare it and specify the means he used to purchase it. An obvious onus will follow if he fails to do this, which is dismissal due to loss of trust,” Ivanov said.

Officials who have not yet disclosed information on their income and expenses for 2012 will have to do this before July 1, Ivanov said, adding he will have to report to the president on October 1 on the foreign property and bank accounts state officials hold.

Deadline for income declarations expires, Putin, Medvedev already file income declarations

MOSCOW, April 1 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev met the deadline to file income declarations for 2012 that expires on Monday, April 1. Under the law, the high-ranking state officials are to file income declarations before April 1 every year.

“The Russian president and all high-ranking officials of his administration have prepared and filed their income declarations under the law,” Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Itar-Tass on Sunday. “This issue is being kept under special control, and the income declarations will be made public within the period of time set in the law,” Peskov pledged. In the previous year the income declarations were made public on April 12.

“The prime minister and the whole Cabinet filed their income declarations for 2012,” Medvedev’s spokesperson Natalia Timakova told Itar-Tass.

Peskov noted that as the country’s leadership reports for 2012, the declarations contain only their incomes so far. The information about their expenses will be produced from 2014 under the law enacted in the previous year and will include large expenses made in 2013.

Ivanov said that the ban on foreign accounts also concerned top executive of Russian state corporations, such as oil giant Rosneft and natural gas monopoly Gazprom.

State Officials Must Not Own Foreign Property - Kremlin

MOSCOW, April 22 (RIA Novosti) – A spokesman for the Kremlin said in an interview aired on Monday that state officials should not own real estate abroad, as it could leave them open to “pressure.”

“Officials should not possess real estate in foreign countries,” Dmitry Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, said in an interview with the state-run Rossiya 24 TV channel.

“[People] working for the government shouldn’t possess any assets or real estate that could leave officials open to pressure,” Peskov said. “Officials would be better advised to be patriotic and have both feet in their own country.”
