MOSCOW, February 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Threats and risks for Vnesheconombank’s business (VEB) are significant in Ukraine amid the recent events, but the bank is not planning to wind up business in the country, Chairman of VEB Vladimir Dmitriev told journalists.
Admitting the risks, Dmitriev said the company did not plan new projects and had long-term intentions about Ukraine, at least in its banking business. Previously, VEB acquired Ukrainian Prominvestbank, he added.
"It is important the situation in Russia's neighbouring country is stable and calm. The government has a tight grip on the situation, it is legitimate and firm in asserting interests of the country's citizens," he said.
Meanwhile, Prominvestbank, VTB’s Ukrainian division and several offices of Sberbank in Kiev suspended working on Wednesday amid the rampage.
