KIEV, April 6. /TASS/. Ukrainian radicals said that due to inaction of the authorities, they will independently stop the activities of the Russian banks in the country from April 10.
"We, Ukrainian nationalists, have decided to take the initiative in our own hands and stop the activities of these banks (Russian) on the territory of our state," the statement of the National Corps organization said.
Such a decision was made due to the absence of "real and effective actions of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) with regard to the activities of the Russian banks."
"Due to the fact that the NBU did not listen to the demands of Ukrainian nationalists to revoke the licenses of Russian banks, we will close them ourselves," the organization's website notes.
Since January, Ukrainian radicals, members of the National Corps nationalist party have declared a "war" to the affiliated branches of Russian banks in Ukraine, demanding that the authorities should withdraw their licenses of those banks adopt a law banning their operation in Ukraine.
On March 16, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko imposed sanctions against five banks with Russian state capital operating on the Ukrainian market. Restrictions were introduced against Sberbank, VS Bank, Prominvestbank, VTB Bank and BM Bank for one-year period.
After that the radicals suspended their campaign to give Ukrainian citizens time to take their money from those banks.
It is known that Russian banks with state capital are now in talks on selling their Ukrainian subsidiaries. In particular, on March 27, Sberbank announced the sale of 100% in the subsidiary PJSC "Sberbank" (Ukraine) to a consortium with the participation of a Latvian bank and a Belarusian company.
