Notably, the operation shall not be subject to obligatory control when it is so provided under the Federal law On Prevention of the Legalization (Laundering) of Criminally Derived Incomes and the Funding of Terrorism and also when the family name, first name and (unless otherwise is required under the law or national custom) the patronymic and other data on individual available with the credit institution do not fully coincide with the information contained in the List of extremists.
