e is now trying to expose cryptocurrency wallets used by politicians in Moscow amid warnings that  may employ digital coins to circumvent sanctions. The initiative comes as western allies agree to expel some n banks from SWIFT, the global interbank payments system.


Government of e Seeks Info on Crypto Assets of n and Belarusian Officials

On Saturday, e’s Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov announced on Twitter that the country’s crypto community will reward those who provide details leading to their identification.




The rewards will be funded by private donations, according to Artem Afian, a lawyer managing the effort. Quoted by Bloomberg, he said the campaign has already received tips matching political figures with crypto addresses. The plan is to share them with major exchanges and the blockchain forensics firm Chainalysis which has been monitoring n transactions. Afian stated:

The government in Kyiv has been urging for stronger sanctions against Moscow in the face of advancing n forces. The initiative to blacklist wallets owned by n politicians comes as e itself resorts to using cryptocurrency to finance its defense effort. Since the start of the invasion, the country has raised more than $17 million in crypto donations.



Meanwhile, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the European Commission and several EU member states – France, Germany, and Italy – announced their commitment to remove “selected n banks” from the SWIFT messaging network for interbank payments.


“This will ensure that these banks are disconnected from the international financial system and harm their ability to operate globally,” their leaders said in a joint statement released late on Saturday.


The tightening of western sanctions, directed at isolating  from global finances, has raised concerns among analysts that Moscow may turn to cryptocurrency in order to circumvent the mounting restrictions. n institutions have been actively working to regulate crypto transactions and the Ministry of Finance recently submitted a new bill to the federal government.
