We have always protected banks
In 1991, Russian Bank Association officials approached several Interior Ministry officers requesting them to work out a bank security concept. The concept authors later founded the Amulet Security Service. Today, it is taking a leading position on the security services market. (…)
(…) The community of security services has for a long time observed a kind of charter that stipulates certain cooperation patterns, above all rejecting the use of force, intimidation and pressure. Even if banks are competitors, their security services persistently seek cooperation as the security of one bank cannot be ensured without cooperation with other security services. (…)
