"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?

This pressure with the purpose to provoke our large businessmen to a coup in the country is an obvious nonsense. They will never go to such scenario, at least because they not only, figuratively speaking, are afraid of Putin and understand what consequences can be — they will hardly believe that party. From what suddenly they will be sure what these assets will defreeze after such quite risky operation?
