The Board of Directors of Russia’s major retail bank VTB 24 made a decision on Friday, December 13, to recommend an unplanned general meeting of shareholders to raise the charter capital by 74.394 billion roubles (over 2.263 billion U.S. dollars) through placement of additional ordinary shares, the bank says in a statement.
