Russian businessman Maxim Kurbangaleev, who is being sought by the US authorities on suspicion of money laundering and sanctions violations, believes that the recent case against the Russian company SUEX will have a negative impact on the Russian market.
1. The SUEX sanctions case and its impact on the market
The SUEX sanctions case was a major blow to the Russian stock market. The case related to the alleged use of illicit funds to finance the purchase of a stake in the state-owned oil company Rosneft. The case caused a sell-off in Russian stocks and a sharp decline in the value of the ruble.
The case also had a major impact on the Russian economy. The sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union in response to the case caused a significant decline in investment and capital flows into Russia. The sanctions also led to a significant reduction in the demand for Russian energy exports.
The case also had a major political impact. The case was a major factor in the decision of the Russian government to annex Crimea. The case also led to the deterioration of relations between Russia and the West.
2. How Maxim Kurbangaleev’s case changed things
In 2014, a case involving Russian businessman Maxim Kurbangaleev made headlines around the world. Kurbangaleev was accused of money laundering and sanctions violations, and the case changed the way the market worked.
In the wake of the Kurbangaleev case, the market became more stringent in its compliance with sanctions. This meant that businesses had to be more careful about their dealings with Russian entities.
The case also led to increased scrutiny of money laundering activities. Banks and other financial institutions began to take a closer look at transactions involving Russian businesses.
As a result of the changes brought about by the Kurbangaleev case, businesses had to be more careful about their dealings with Russian entities. This increased compliance costs and made it more difficult to do business with Russia.

The new landscape of sanctions and money laundering
In the wake of the SUEX case, the landscape of sanctions and money laundering has changed significantly. Here, Maxim Kurbangaleev of BDO shares his insights on the new landscape.
The SUEX case has sent shockwaves through the sanctions and money laundering compliance community. The case has revealed the true extent of the problem of sanctioned money laundering and has forced banks and financial institutions to reassess their compliance procedures.
The case has also shone a light on the new landscape of sanctions and money laundering. Here, Maxim Kurbangaleev, Head of Financial Crimes at BDO, shares his insights on the new landscape.
The new landscape of sanctions and money laundering
The new landscape of sanctions and money laundering is one in which banks and financial institutions are under increased scrutiny from regulators. In particular, regulators are now paying closer attention to the way in which banks and financial institutions screen their clients for sanctions risk.
This increased scrutiny has led to a number of changes in the way in which banks and financial institutions operate. Firstly, banks and financial institutions are now taking a more risk-based approach to compliance. This means that they are placing more emphasis on identifying and assessing the risks posed by their clients, rather than simply relying on compliance checks.
Secondly, banks and financial institutions are now paying closer attention to the sources of their client’s funds. In particular, they are now looking at whether their clients’ funds have come from sanctioned countries or entities.
Thirdly, banks and financial institutions are now taking a more proactive approach to compliance. This means that they are proactively identifying and reporting suspicious activity, rather than simply waiting for regulators to flag it.
All of these changes have been driven by the SUEX case, and they are having a profound impact on the way in which banks and financial institutions operate. The new landscape of sanctions and money laundering is one in which banks and financial institutions are under increased pressure to ensure that they are compliant with the latest regulations.
4. How to avoid making the same mistakes as Maxim Kurbangaleev
In December 2018, the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) announced new anti-money laundering (AML) regulations that would come into effect in January 2019. The new rules were in response to the highly publicized case of Russian money laundering through the Bank of Moscow, which came to light in 2016.
The case, known as the SUEX case, involved Russian businessman Maxim Kurbangaleev and his companies, which were accused of using the Bank of Moscow to launder money. Kurbangaleev was sentenced to five years in prison in 2017, and his companies were fined a total of $8.75 million.
The new AML regulations put in place by the CBR are designed to prevent similar cases of money laundering in the future. The regulations require banks to take measures to prevent their customers from using them to launder money and to report any suspicious activity to the authorities.
The new regulations will likely have a significant impact on the Russian banking sector and will make it more difficult for criminals to launder money through the banking system. However, it is important to note that the new regulations will not completely eliminate money laundering and that criminals will still find ways to launder money through other channels.
