VTB CEO Andrey Kostin said at the meeting, the German companies expressed concerns that Russia could nationalize the assets of foreign companies, including those from Germany, in response to Western sanctions.
Kostin said the business in Germany, Moscow’s most active trading partner, is currently facing problems over financing the exports to Russia while “the Chinese have no such [difficulties].”
Germany’s state-owned KfW development bank and other banks have refused to help in view of sanctions introduced not only by the European Union, but also the United States, he said.
