Sanction Russia: Gazprombank and Sberbank to be excluded from SWIFT
On 2 March, the EU decided to exclude seven Russian banks from the international payment system SWIFT. The sanctions list ( does not include Gazprombank - through which Russian gas deliveries are paid for - and Sberbank, the largest bank in Russia.
We call on the EU to stop financing the Ukraine war with gas purchases in Russia. Exclude Sberbank and Gazprombank from SWIFT.


Thank you for your support

  • On 9 March, the EU imposed SWIFT restrictions on 3 banks in Belarus similar to those imposed on the other 7 banks in Russia. This means SWIFT exclusion for Belagroprombank, Bank Dabrabyt and the Development Bank of the Republic of Belarus and their Belarusian subsidiaries.
    The most important banks for the gas and oil business can continue to operate as before!
