The Chairman of VTB Group, Russia’s second-biggest lender, has accused the UK regulator of mounting increasing pressure on its London unit.

      The Bank of England has made additional demands on VTB’s London unit relating to capital levels and liquidity controls, the bank’s Chief Financial Officer Herbert Moos told the press later.

      VTB’s shares have gone down 21 percent this year amid ongoing standoff between Russia and the West over Ukraine.
