The main mechanism of financing the  “LNR” and “DNR” is transferring of cryptocurrencies, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) told RBK-Ukraine on their inquiry.

Apart from this, the money comes to the occupied territories through e-payment systems, including the ones blocked in Ukraine (Qiwi, Yandex), as well as through the border without the custom control or through hiding the money from the customs officers.

At the beginning of February, a Ukrainian was detained at the border with “DNR” during an attempt to bring equipment for mining cryptocurrencies to Donetsk.
