"The sanctions car". Credit Suisse has frozen $5 billion connected with Russia


Two other large Swiss bank, UBS and Julius Baer, have also declared the commitment to observance of the mode of sanctions of the Photo: Arnd Wiegmann/Reuters In Switzerland was frozen by money of Russians. According to Reuters, Credit Suisse has blocked about 5 billion Swiss francs (a little more than 5 billion dollars) on the accounts linked with Russia to avoid hit under sanctions of the USA.B bank have refused to reveal names of owners of frozen accounts. "Credit Suisse cooperates with the international regulators to provide execution of sanctions, including the sanctions connected with Russia" — the representative of bank has told the agency. Two other large Swiss bank, UBS and Julius Baer, have also declared the commitment to observance of the mode of sanctions, but have refused to report whether accounts someone from their clients have been frozen, RBC reports. Who else can follow the example of Credit Suisse? Alexey Karpenko is a lawyer, the senior partner of the Forward Legal company "It is possible to speak about now if information on blocking of means of Credit Suisse really is confirmed that not at the state level and not the American institutions and the companies, and already at the private level and at the level international sanctions have really begun to make big problems and to cause essential inconveniences to the Russian business.

This pressure with the purpose to provoke our large businessmen to a coup in the country is an obvious nonsense.
