One foreign investor has shown an interest in buying the Ukrainian subsidiary of Sberbank of Russia, Kateryna Rozhkova, Deputy Head of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU), has told reporters.
"One potential buyer has approached us and we're working with them. I can't be more precise for now," she told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Kyiv on the protection of the rights of consumers of financial services.
She did say this was a nonresident who had sent a letter of intent to the NBU but had not yet submitted the paperwork in support of a deal.
"The potential ability of a buyer to support develop is important for us as a regulator. This is very important, not taking into account restructuring moments. We attentively look at these things," she said.
