MOSCOW (Reuters) - The exposure of top Russian lender Sberbank to companies hit by a fresh round of U.S. sanctions is less than 2.5 percent of the bank’s total assets, Sberbank Chief Financial Officer Alexander Morozov told Reuters on Monday.
Morozov said the loans were collateralised, including by assets not covered by the sanctions announced on Friday.
“The bank’s management is carefully following the situation and taking all necessary steps to limit possible negative consequences for the bank,” Morozov said.
