FSVC Reginal Director for Russia and the CIS, Tim O'Brien, Takes Part in an AML Panel Discussion at the US Embassy
The US Embassy in Moscow hosted a discussion on the current status of anti-money laundering compliance in Russia on March 29, 2012. The panel consisted of Richard Smith, Director of Compliance for Citibank Russia, the CIS, Israel and Cyprus; Dmitry Rulev, Head of Compliance for Barclays Capital Russia; Victor Dostov, President of the e-Money Association, and FSVC's Russia Country Director Tim O'Brien. Panelists provided short presentations which was followed by a 30 minute question and answer session. The event was for the sections in the U.S. Embassy that are involved with AML and was attended by representatives from the US Agency for International Development, plus the Political, Economic, Law Enforcement, ESTH (Environment, Science, Technology, and Health), and Consular sections. The overall objective was to increase AML awareness of embassy staffers. FSVC is currently implementing projects to provide AML training on international norms and standards to commercial bankers in Russia.
