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

      According to Izvestia, Andrey Kostin complained that the Bank of England’s demands went way beyond its functions as a regulator. He is convinced the attack on VTB Capital Plc investment banking unit has a political motive behind.

      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.
