Starting on March 7th, Sberbank will offer its services to citizens with passports from the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, the state-controlled bank’s press service has reported.
In mid-February, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognizing documents given to citizens of Ukraine and non-citizens on the territories of the separated districts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions until the situation is politically resolved.
Sberbank explained that it needed time following Putin’s signing of the decree to organize for the reception of new passports.
“Today Sberbank is ready to serve persons with DPR and LPR passports at all branches of the bank,” Sberbank’s press service stated.
