The Federal Customs Service of Russia (Russian: Федеральная таможенная служба Российской Федерации, Federalnaya tamozhennaya sluzhba Rossiskoy Federatsii; abbreviated ФТС России, FTS Rossii) is a Russian government service regulating customs. It is part of Russia's Ministry of Finance.
In 1917 the Soviet Customs Service was operated as The Main Directorate for Customs Control as part of the MKTP - The People's Commissariat for Trade and Industry.
In 1991, The Soviet Customs was replaced with The State Customs Committee (GTK) under the Ministry for Economic Development and in 2006 the GTK was renamed to current name.
