MOSCOW, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Russia’s central bank said on Tuesday that a banker at Deutsche Bank’s Russian branch had manipulated markets by conducting 300 billion roubles ($4.87 billion) of trades with relatives over two and a half years.
The central bank said the trades, which were made between January 2013 and July 2015, had generated a profit of 255 million roubles ($4.14 million) for Deutsche Bank employee Yuri Khilov and three relatives.
The findings are the result of a long-running investigation into allegations that Deutsche helped clients in Russia disguise suspicious trades.
A Deutsche spokesman in Russia declined immediate comment. ($1 = 61.6257 roubles) (Reporting by Elena Orekhova; Additional reporting by Olga Popova; Writing by Alexander Winning and Katya Golubkova; Editing by Andrew Osborn)
