  • We look at certain problems related to the prevention of money laundering. On the basis of comparative analysis, we reveal the key problems arising when preventing crimes stipulated by articles 174 and 174.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. The problems in question include high latency of this type of crime, criminals’ reliance on modern technology, the investigation complexity. We conclude by suggesting ways to solve the problems in question, namely expanding the powers of law enforcement agencies that control and combat criminal income laundering, developing forensic methods of investigating the money laundering, summarizing investigative and judicial practice, holding scientific and practical conferences.
