Recall that the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation recognized Bitcoin as a money laundering tool. By decision of the court, the concept of “cryptocurrency” was introduced into the ruling on cases of money laundering and property acquired by criminal means. Thus, articles 174 and 174.1 of the Criminal Code on the legalization of criminal proceeds should also apply to virtual currency.
