Japan urges crypto exchanges to act in line with sanctions against Russia

According to officials, the Japanese government will urge cryptocurrency exchanges not to process transactions involving cryptoassets subject to asset-freeze sanctions against Russia and Belarus.

The government will work together to strengthen measures against the transfer of funds using cryptoassets that would violate sanctions, according to a joint statement from the Ministry of Finance and the Financial Services Agency.
