"We are looking for ways to get out of Ukraine. We do not have much time with such position of the government (of Ukraine – Ostrov). I would comment nothing until we reach the final decision", - he said, adding that the assets of Ukrainian "daughter" of the Russian Sberbank account for 0.1% of the group's assets.

As previously reported, Sberbank announced on March 7 that it would start the customer service with null and void "passports" of the terrorist "DPP/LPR". The National Bank of Ukraine imposed sanctions against the banks with Russian state capital operating in the country in response to this.
