ST. PETERSBURG, May 24 (RAPSI, Mikhail Telekhov) — No future scheduled inspections of non-profit organizations (NPOs) are planned in Russia, Deputy Minister of Justice of Russia Maxim Bezkhmelnitzin said at the Digitalization of National Jurisdiction discussion session held within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum (SPBILF) 9 ¾, which completed its work in St. Petersburg on Saturday.

There has been created a new system of control and supervision of NPO’s activities. The necessary information will be requested from the financial crimes agency Rosfinmonitoring and the Central Bank. Artificial intelligence (AI) will analyze it, so the Ministry experts could understand where inspections need to be send, Bezkhmelnitzin explained.

Also, the Deputy Minister noted, AI will be used with regard to the registration system of departmental legal acts. The Ministry of Justice registers about a million municipal legal acts annually, and there are more than 11 million of them in the database. This is a huge amount of work. In the near future, the Ministry is planning to train a neural network so it could identify corruption-related facts in regulatory documents. It is expected that such a new tool should reduce the time it takes to pass papers by 50 percent, Bezkhmelnitzin said.
