"Power players from around the world are popping up in the Panama Papers, the leaked cache of 11 million documents that show the world's elite hide billions in tax shelters.

These are the countries implicated in the Panama Papers

Although sheltering money overseas isn't necessarily illegal, the revelations provide one of the largest windows into the opaque world of offshore funds and how the wealthy move their money. Critics say it may also raise questions about potential ethical violations by political leaders and their associates.

See who's implicated — and from where — below. (We will continue to update this list as more information emerges.)

- Argentina:
Argentina President Mauricio Marci and his brother were directors for a Bahamas company managed by Mossack Fonseca, the Panama-based law firm from which the documents came, while Marci served as mayor of Buenos Aires.

- Iceland:
Iceland Prime Minister Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson was found to be using offshore tax havens. When he was asked about this during an interview, he simply walked out.

Thousands of Icelanders on Monday gathered at the Parliament House in protest, throwing yogurt and toilet paper.

- Mexico:
Mexican magnate Juan Armando Hinojosa Cantu, whose company once purchased a mansion for Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto's wife, hid at least $100 million in offshore companies managed by Mossack Fonseca.

Also, Guadalajara Cartel cofounder Rafael Caro Quintero operated a company through Mossack Fonseca.

- Pakistan:
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family own property in Pakistan and London’s tony Mayfair neighborhood.

- Russia:
Russia President Vladimir Putin's close friend and godfather to his child, concert cellist Sergei Roldugin, agreed to be a front for the Russian president to launder $2 billion to offshore accounts. The operation was run by Bank Rossiya, which is under American and European sanctions following Moscow's annexation of Crimea.

- Syria:
Two cousins connect Syria President Bashar al-Assad to the Panama Papers.

- Ukraine:
Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko became the sole shareholder in an offshore British Virgin Islands company while his army was surrounded and hundreds of troops were slaughtered by Russian forces in the eastern town of Ilovaisk in August 2014.

- United Kingdom:
Prime Minister David Cameron's late father, Ian Cameron, allegedly ran an offshore fund that paid nothing in U.K. tax for three decades".
