Of course, nobody will wring his hands and blame in aiding and abetting terrorism if you suddenly jerked the wrong eyes, or you are in a strange fidget in the chair – soothes Belyaev Is just a signal for workers to include vigilance and check of the client for the full program, on all documents.

As for raising the threshold of “blind” exchange transactions in which the citizen’s identity will remain a mystery for the Bank, this experts reacted calmly.
