EU and US target Russia's banks
The US, UK, and EU are significantly increasing the pressure on Russia's banks. The US Treasury Department announced last night that it would also place the country's two largest institutions, Sberbank and VTB, on the sanctions list and thus no longer allow them to conduct dollar-based transactions. In addition, Washington is freezing the US-related assets of VTB and three other Russian banks.
