NBU refuses to agree on acquisition of significant participation Gutseriev and Guselnikov in Sberbank, Mikitasu and Fuchs in Prominvestbank

On July 28, the Committee for Supervision and Regulation of Banks and Oversight over Payment Systems of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) has decided to deny the approval of the acquisition of substantial share in the public JSC Sberbank to Russian businessmen Said Gutseriyev and Grigoriy Guselnikov; and in the public JSC Prominvestbank to Maksym Mykytas and Pavlo Fuks.

Interfax-Ukraine learnt this at the press service of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU).

"These decisions were made due to the investors' failure to provide necessary and sufficient documents to verify their compliance with requirements of Ukrainian legislation," a spokesman for the regulator said.
