Materials and methods: when writing the work, the author used methods of the general theory of statistics, namely absolute values, methods of analysis and synthesis. A graphical method of data visualization was used to visually display statistical data.
Results: the article reveals the main problems that hinder the effective operation of the national anti-washing system. The emphasis is placed on the mechanism of interaction of Rosfinmonitoring with the law enforcement unit of Russia. It is noted that the role of financial monitoring is important from the standpoint of ensuring the economic security of the state. The effectiveness of the work carried out by Rosfinmonitoring on countering illegal financial and economic transactions is analyzed.
