US senators Gene Shahin and Sheldon Whitehouse sent letters to the largest international banks demanding that they disclose information about ties with Russians from the Kremlin's list.
Letters are sent to both American and European banks: Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citibank, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, UBS and Credit Suisse.
Senators want to "carefully study those" with whom banks "conduct their business", as well as "increase pressure" on both banks and Russians, TASS reports citing Reuters.
US lawmakers require that they be provided with information about checks of accounts, if any, of Russians over the past five years.
In case of failure of banks to provide these senators threaten to start a government investigation.
Recall, the "Kremlin list" (or "Kremlin report"), which turned out to be 114 major officials and heads of state companies of Russia and 96 entrepreneurs, the US Treasury presented to the US Congress on the night of 30 January.
