NBU sees no opportunity to agree Paritetbank's acquisition of Ukrainian Sberbank - Rozhkova
The Belarusian-based Paritetbank does not comply with the requirements of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) for the acquisition of the Ukrainian subsidiary of Russia's Sberbank, NBU First Deputy Head Kateryna Rozhkova has said.
"We have once again denied the applicant because it did not meet our requirements ... There were a number of items, not just technical ones. Look at the size of the capital and portfolio of Paritetbank and Sberbank, this is one of the discrepancies," she told Interfax-Ukraine.
According to Rozhkova, the National Bank does not currently see a potential buyer for Sberbank in Ukraine.
