The National Bank of Ukraine believes that the sanctions against banks with Russian state capital, expiring on March 16, should be prolonged. Vitaliy Vavryshchuk, the Head of the National Bank Financial Stability Department said this, as Interfax-Ukraine reports.

“Yes, there is a need to prolong them,” he responded.

He also mentioned that the presence of banks with Russian capital within the banking sector is decreasing by all indicators.

“In fact, I think, that this is the matter of time, when banks with Russian capital exit Ukrainian market.  We see clearly, that Russian capital will exit Ukrainian banking sector entirely,” Vavryshchuk said.
