KIEV, March 15. /TASS/. The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) has proposed prohibiting banks with Russian capital to withdraw funds outside the country. This was announced by Deputy Head of the NBU Yakov Smoliy at a briefing on Wednesday.
"In order to preserve the financial stability of Ukraine and ensure that banks with Russian capital fully meet their obligations to customers, the NBU proposes imposing sanctions in the form of a ban on withdrawal of capital outside Ukraine," he said.
The deputy head of the regulator said that the sanctions will be imposed on Sberbank, Prominvestbank, VTB, BM Bank and VS Bank.
