Representatives of Sberbank hold personal meetings with senior US government officials and assure them of the rule of law of the main Russian bank. They also support their arguments with “facts”: almost 4 a year after the return of Crimea to the Russian Federation, the main bank of Russia did not open a single branch on the peninsula.
In the face of the fear of losing hundreds of millions of dollars, the management of Sberbank is ready to yield on a number of issues. In lobbying their interests in America, Sber directs a lot of money.
All this is happening against the backdrop of plans of German Gref to begin the privatization of the state-owned bank.
The plot begins at 22: 50 minute.
