One example of how they are:

Putins brother used them to launder billions, they claimed they didn't know he was related to Putin despite his brothers' last name ALSO BEING PUTIN!

So they had a guy with the last name Putin who wanted to send billions through the bank, and they didn't think it sounded the least bit suspicious that a Russian man with the last name "Putin" had access to so much money, so they didn't do any form of background check to see where this money was actually coming from or who he was.

Oh yeah, during this entire time (a solid 8-10 year period), whistleblowers repeatedly said that this was extremely suspicious and alerted their bosses about it, but were told it was fine and to shut up.

Let me guess, at no point during that entire time did anyone from the government do anything about this incredibly suspicious activity?
