Bloomberg: the Russian business is expelled from the Cyprian paradise


Two businessmen told the agency that the Cyprian banks which clients they were more than ten years, requested from them documents on origin of means, it was not succeeded to provide them, and accounts had to be closed. As interlocutors of Business FM speak, the Cyprian banks check already hundreds of people of the Photo: depositphotos.com In Cyprus banks close accounts of Russians which were their clients more than ten years. Bloomberg with reference to stories by two Russian businessmen reports about it.
