How To Move Money Out Of Russia

As of 2013, the Russian Government introduced fines to Russian nationals on any transaction where money was sent to overseas bank accounts. The fines could range from 75% - 100% of any transfer to a foreign account if the transfer did not go through a Russian bank account. Those most affected were people renting flats in foreign cities or those that received payments for freelance work from non-Russian firms. The thought process behind these fines, was that it would help the government in their quest to stop capital flight and fight corruption.
