European Central Bank set to order UniCredit to reduce Russia business

19 aprilie 2024

The European Central Bank (ECB) is poised to order Italy’s UniCredit to cut back its business with Russia, two people with knowledge of the discussions said, as the regulator exerts pressure to choke off European financial ties with Moscow, according to Reuters.

The demands on the second-biggest European bank in Russia would be similar to what the ECB wants from Austria’s Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) the largest Western bank active in the country, the people told Reuters, requesting anonymity because the matter is confidential.

After months of discussions, the ECB is set to send UniCredit a legally-binding order, the sources said, in a significant increase in pressure to pare back its Russia business. This is the penultimate step before the ECB can impose penalties, such as fines.
