Back on May 29, the World Bank’s international financial corporation voted to transfer $340 million to French retailer Auchan for the development of its network in Russia, Vietnam and some other developing countries, a World Bank official told Bloomberg.
The decision provoked disputes in the World Bank. “Canada took a principled position and voted the project down, as we do not support those projects which may be profitable for Russia. Russia should keep out of the affairs of a sovereign state,” Canada’s official said.
The United States and three more members of the World Bank’s board refrained from the voting, a board member told Bloomberg on the condition of anonymity.
