Putin Says He’ll Have His Salary Sent to Sanctioned Bank Rossiya

President Vladimir Putin said he’d open an account in the Russian lender targeted under U.S. sanctions and have his salary payments transfered there.

“I already said I’m planning to open my personal account there,” Putin told reporters today in Moscow, referring to comments earlier today at a Security Council meeting. “What’s more, I’ve told the presidential affairs office to have my salary deposited there.”
