The Russian Federation is excluded from the Council of Europe and MONEYVAL

On 17 March 2022 the Russian Federation was excluded from the Council of Europe. The decision was taken by the Committee of Ministers in an extraordinary meeting and in the context of the procedure launched under Article 8 of the Statute of the Council of Europe. By consequence, Russia also ceases to be a member of MONEYVAL, after 25 years of engagement in the Committee, which it joined in 1997.
