Vice President of the Association of Banks of Russia (ABR) Anatoly Kozlachkov stated that in the light of challenges associated with seizing crypto lying in accounts of debtors and criminals, ABR is introducing criminal liability for keeping crypto assets in non-custodial wallets.
The initial proposal of the Association of Banks of Russia, in accordance with the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, was to criminalize any and all undeclared storing of digital assets in non-custodial wallets. Although, recently, the ABR has been contemplating addressing refusals to hand over wallet keys when asked by authorities.
ABR notes that it isn’t referring to wallets provided by crypto exchange platforms but wallets controlled by the user directly. As in the former, the platform itself acts as the body of control over the wallet in question, similar to how a bank company would.
Opposing this opinion, the head of the Legal Development Department of the Center for Strategic Research, Maxim Bashkatov, thinks that forbidding non-custodial wallets isn’t the right answer. He points out that keeping crypto assets on digital currency exchange platforms is currently unstable for Russian traders because of the risk of asset freezing in light of the recent sanctions imposed over the war in Ukraine.
