As a consequence of sanctions against Russia, the operation of the Russian bank Sberbank in Slovenia has been temporarily limited to card transactions, the central bank announced.
Other services will be unavailable until Wednesday, and branch offices closed. Withdrawals and payments are limited to EUR 400 per day. In the wake of this, Gorenjska Banka decided to halt the planned acquisition of Sberbank Slovenija and the latter’s clients faced difficulties as some 100 social transfers had been rejected and other issues are expected. PM Janez Janša assured Slovenian citizens who have their deposits with the Slovenian subsidiary of Sberbank that their savings are safe.
