Successful UK Russia sanctions revocation request

Lev Khasis, the former First Deputy Chairman of PJSC Sberbank, was removed from the UK’s Russia sanctions list today, after a request for ministerial review was submitted by Peters & Peters to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.


Mr Khasis had resigned his position at Sberbank before Russia invaded Ukraine.


He was listed by the UK, initially under the urgent procedure, on the basis of his prior designation by Canada.


Mr Khasis was represented by Anna Bradshaw and Alistair Jones of Peters & Peters.
