Also the European Commission intends to give to recently formed prosecutor's office of the EU the rights for excitement since 2025 of cases of financing of terrorist activity. Both initiatives of strengthening of powers of the EU in fight against money laundering have followed messages about what in one year has passed not less than 30 billion dollars from Russia through the Estonian branch Danske Bank and other CIS countries. At the moment the ECB has some rights of check of banks for money laundering. Besides, responsibility for fight against washing of means lies mostly on national regulators. Now, according to plans, the European prosecutor's office will be able not only to investigate the financial crimes connected with use of budgets of the European countries but also to begin criminal prosecution. ​ By the present moment 22 of 28 EU countries have agreed with a similar initiative.
