Businessmen Arkady and Boris Rotenberg, close allies of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, have created a company that is not legally required to disclose its beneficiaries, BBC and Finance Uncovered said in an investigation. In 2016 and 2017, the British government introduced new rules that required almost all UK companies to name their beneficial owners to fight money laundering. However, limited partnerships are not subject to the new transparency rules.
