“During recent consultations with the relevant authorities, Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) did not obtain the necessary permission to carry out the planned transaction (acquisition of shares in Strabag SE by the RBI group – ed.). The bank decided to refrain itself. from the transaction for precautionary reasons,” the statement said. .

The RBI noted that “since the outbreak of the war, the RBI has significantly reduced its activities in Russia and taken extensive steps to reduce the risks associated with tightening sanctions and compliance requirements.”

“Regardless of the decision not to proceed with the Strabag SE transaction, the RBI still intends to deconsolidate its Russian subsidiary,” the banking group concluded.
