Sanctions put squeeze on Russia loans
Russian companies are facing tougher loan restrictions from western banks as sanctions against the country start to bite.

Banks are insisting that new loans to Russian businesses that are not directly targeted by sanctions carry clauses forcing immediate repayment or default if sanctions affect those companies.

“If someone sneezes towards your company, the loan becomes immediately due and payable,” said the chief financial officer of a large Russian group.

Loan deals have almost dried up in the past two months since the Ukraine crisis erupted and Moscow annexed Crimea. US and Japanese banks have taken a more cautious approach in the region with Wells Fargo telling the Financial Times yesterday that it had stopped doing new business in Russia.

But some European banks are trying to continue working with the country despite the threat of more sanctions.

According to people familiar with the matter, bankers insisted on rewording the terms of a deal with Metalloinvest, the metals company owned by Alisher Usmanov, Russia’s richest man, just days before it announced a $1bn financing.

European banks, including Deutsche Bank, ING, Société Générale and BNP Paribas, made up the bulk of the deal, announced as the US and Europe unveiled the first sanctions against Russia in March.

俄罗斯公司正面临西方银行更为严厉的贷款限制。西方针对俄罗斯的制裁开始产生效果。

对于没有被列入制裁目标的俄罗斯企业,西方银行坚持要求向其发放的新贷款带有如下条款:如果制裁影响到这些公司,就需要立即偿还贷款,否则就算违约。

俄罗斯一家大型企业集团的首席财务官表示:“如果有人对你的公司打了一个喷嚏,贷款就立即到期,得马上偿还。”

在乌克兰危机爆发、莫斯科吞并克里米亚以来的两个月里,贷款协议几乎已经枯竭。美国和日本银行在俄罗斯采取了更为谨慎的姿态。富国银行(Wells Fargo)昨日向英国《金融时报》表示,该行已停止在俄罗斯开展新的业务。

但一些欧洲银行正努力继续与俄罗斯合作,尽管后者有可能面临更多的制裁。

知情人士表示,在俄罗斯首富阿利舍尔?乌斯马诺夫(Alisher Usmanov)旗下的金属公司Metalloinvest宣布获得10亿美元融资的前几天,银行家们坚持要求修改协议条款。

参与这笔交易的主要是欧洲银行,包括德意志银行(Deutsche Bank)、荷兰国际集团(ING)、法国兴业银行(Société Générale)和法国巴黎银行(BNP Paribas)。这笔交易在今年3月美国和欧洲出台首轮针对俄罗斯的制裁之际公布。
