Transparency International liquidates division in Russia

The Russian branch of the international anti-corruption organization Transparency International has announced that it is liquidating a legal entity established in Russia.

This decision was made by the council of the autonomous non-profit organization Center for Anti-Corruption Research and Initiatives Transparency International-R.

The organization said in a statement that after the Russian authorities declared Transparency International an “undesirable” organization, the further work of the Russian division, founded in 1999, became almost impossible.

“This decision was made because we, the founders and leaders of TI-Russia, believe that the people who work with us and who believe in our mission – combating corruption, promoting transparency, accountability and decency – are more important than words, names and other legal circumstances imposed on us, ”said the representatives of the organization.

Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation declared Transparency International an “undesirable organization” on March 6.

A day earlier, on March 15, Transparency International released the first investigation into Russia after the Russian authorities declared the organization “undesirable.” It said that there were eight companies operating in the business district of Moscow City that were ready to exchange crypto for pounds sterling and deliver cash by courier in London. The investigation was published in English, there is no Russian version.
