March 2022 Update

Russian Bank VTB has been the subject of UK sanctions. However the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI) has issued a General Licence that allows a person or relevant institution a month to wind down any transactions to which it is a party involving VTB Bank or the UK Subsidiary. This General Licence expires on 27 March 2022. If you are a customer of VTB Bank and require advice on how this General Licence may apply to you, please get in touch with Sonia Ahmad at
