"Of course, we are watching with great concern the conditions in which subsidiaries of financial and credit organizations have to work in Ukraine. We believe that, of course, this situation… absolutely destroys the general investment climate in Ukraine and shows the whole world that now it is very dangerous and it is hardly economically expedient to work on the territory of Ukraine," Peskov told reporters.
He added that it was also physically and morally dangerous to work at the moment in Ukraine.
"We state that we do not understand the inability or unwillingness of Ukraine's law enforcement bodies to stop radical elements," he said.
On March 7, the National Bank of Ukraine said it might initiate sanctions against the subsidiary of Russia's Sberbank in the country if the Russian leading bank started providing services for holders of passports of self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics in eastern Ukraine.
On Monday, Ukrainian branch of Russia's Sberbank said it appealed to law enforcement agencies after radical activists walled off its central office entrance in Kiev with concrete blocks. The situation exacerbated on Tuesday, with vandalism against Russian banks' subsidiaries intensifying.
