Representatives of nationalistic organizations have barred the entrance to a PJSC Sberbank office in the city of Dnipro in Lenin Street on March 15.
Operation of two bank branches in Kyiv and Dnipro has been suspended by now, the bank press service told Interfax on March 15. “The bank works in routine mode and implements all obligations to its clients. Operation of two bank offices in Kyiv and Dnipro has been temporarily suspended by now. All other bank offices operate as before,” a press service officer said.
The nationalists have bricked up with concrete blocks the entrance to the PJSC Sberbank central office in Volodymyrska Street in central Kyiv earlier this week. They called on the Ukrainian state authorities to deprive Russian banks of their license in Ukraine. The bank offices were temporarily suspended for security reasons.
