OCCRP, 14 GIJN Members Track $21B

How do you track $21 billion in laundered money from Russian banks? The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and Russia's Novaya Gazeta obtained detailed banking records for over 120 suspect accounts, and shared the data with reporters from over 30 outlets (including 14 GIJN members). Dubbed "The Russian Laundromat Exposed," the project details "how more than $20.8 billion was taken out of Russia and laundered, who got the money, and why some of the world’s largest banks failed to shut the scheme down."
