The Polish subsidiary of the French bank BNP Paribas has sent a letter to its clients today, which says about the introduction of additional restrictions against residents of Belarus and Russia. It’s about both individuals and legal entities. The editors of motolko.help managed to get this letter.
It says that the bank will limit or stop providing services to customers from Belarus or Russia, who are not citizens of the EU or Switzerland, or do not have a residence permit (permanent residence permit) in the EU, and who have on their accounts more than 100 thousand euros or the equivalent currency. That is, these restrictions will affect clients who are not residents of the EU and have large sums of money on their bank accounts. We remind that back in March, BNP Paribas began to refuse Belarusians to open bank accounts.
It should be noted that these restrictions correspond to the EU sanctions imposed in March. However, the bank indicated in the letter references to documents that have nothing to do with the current restrictions.
