Russian banks are asked to provide them with access to information about the subpoenas received by the Russians – without it, they cannot comply with the provisions of the new law on the digital registration system for those liable for military service. RBC writes about this with reference to letters from the National Financial Market Council (NSFR) sent to the Ministry of Defense and the Central Bank.
In accordance with the law adopted in April, banks are required to refuse loans to those who did not appear on the agenda, but without access to the relevant register, it will not be possible to follow this rule, the letters say.
“The fact that banks will be involved in the implementation of new norms was a discovery for everyone on the market … It is very strange that, when setting the requirement for financial organizations, neither they nor the Bank of Russia were involved in the discussion,” Andrey, chairman of the National Financial Markets Service, told the publication Emelin.
Banks are asked to provide them with access to the date the summons was sent, the date when it is considered served, the date the restrictive measures were introduced, as well as data on appeals by citizens of interim measures. According to the NSFR, banks should be given access within one minute without the prior consent of the citizen.
The NSFR was also asked to explain how to act in a situation where there was no subpoena at the time the loan application was submitted, but on the day the contract was signed, restrictive measures were already introduced against the client. Banks also want clarification regarding customer requests for restructuring or refinancing of loans. The NSFR is also preparing an appeal to the Ministry of Digital Development, Emelin noted.
On April 14, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the law on electronic subpoenas. In accordance with the document, which entered into force on the same day, summons to those liable for military service will be sent in writing and duplicated in electronic form at the State Services.
The electronic summons will be considered delivered at the time of its placement in the personal account on the State Services. In case of non-appearance on the agenda, a number of restrictions are imposed on the citizen, including a ban on driving a car and making transactions with their real estate. In addition, those who received the summons will not be able to leave Russia until they appear at the military registration and enlistment office.
In May, the Ministry of Digital Transformation published a draft government decree on the creation of a unified electronic register of military registration, which will publish data on the imposition of restrictive measures on a citizen, which will be removed one day after the appearance at the military registration and enlistment office. The new rules also provide for the maintenance of a public register of served summonses, which will contain personal data, the dates of sending and receiving the summons, the date of appearance at the military registration and enlistment office and the method of sending.
