Also, working closely with crypto service providers in e and abroad, the SFMS introduced a mechanism for the “blocking of crypto wallets of the n Federation." It's unclear whether it means n wallets in general or those linked to the government in Moscow.

The state service reminded that last year it turned to Binance, the world's largest crypto exchange, suggesting actions "to curb the aggression of the n Federation in the virtual assets market" and prevent peer-to-peer transactions for users of various n banks and payment systems.

The report coincided with a statement by e's Minister of Digital Transformation, Mykhailo Fedorov, promising that the country will become "the best crypto jurisdiction in the world" once it finalizes its regulatory framework for the industry.

In the past few years, e established itself as a leader in crypto adoption in Eastern Europe and has been accepting crypto donations since the start of the n invasion. Its parliament passed a law "On Virtual Assets" last February and has been preparing respective amendments to the Tax Code.
