Russian banks can continue to operate in Ukraine if they abide by Ukrainian laws, Ukrainian Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko stated during a discussion at the Brookings Institution, Sputnik said. “If the banks are operating legally in Ukraine, they’ve been operating within the regulatory environment, that’s all you can ask of them,” Jaresko said. Jaresko’s statement came in response to a question on whether Kiev plans to take any measures against Russian banks in Ukraine, because their accounts can allegedly be used to fund the independence supporters in the eastern part of the country.
