Vienna, January 29 – The bank told APA on Sunday that the “daughter” of the Austrian Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) Raiffeisen Liege Rusland, which was subject to sanctions by Kyiv, has no assets in Ukraine.
As a result of the sanctions, the RBI said, customers entering Ukraine with leased goods may be “affected”. In addition, the statement states that since February 24, 2022, Raiffeisen Leasing Russland has not entered into new lease agreements in Russia.
Earlier, the agency reported that it became known that the Russian branch of RBI Raiffeisen Leasing Russland was on Ukraine’s sanctions list for “supporting the war.” Almost the entire RBI board has been placed on the list of individuals who are proposed to be sanctioned. Earlier, Kyiv called on Austrian companies to immediately leave the Russian market.
Raiffeisen International Bank (RBI), in response to the request of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) to leave the Russian market, announced the difficulties of leaving the Russian Federation and confirmed that it is considering all strategic opportunities. The bank also said that it had already reduced lending in the Russian Federation, announcing a decrease in the loan portfolio by a quarter.
The agency said the sanctions also affected the Russian branch of Austrian bank UniCreditBank.
