“We conducted negotiations with the EBRD management and with other shareholders. Neither the management, nor other shareholders share this point of view,” the deputy minister said.

He said at the end of June, the bank shareholders will be approving a strategy on operations in Russia for the next three to four years, and they are expected to “convince the management of a need to continue and boost work in Russia”.
