NEW YORK, October 7. The Bank of Russia has not received complaints on the accuracy of reporting of Transaero airlines, has declared to journalists the first Deputy Chairman of the CBR Sergey Shvetsov during new York session of Moscow exchange forum.
“There are two stories – the disclosure of reliable information and the audit of the financial statements, and violations should be punished most severely. In my opinion, today the distortion of the prospectus is criminally responsible. Here, the Bank of Russia, if such facts are revealed, be achieved within existing instruments that the perpetrators suffered”, – said Shvetsov.
According to him, if the company adequately disclosed its information and formulated a strategy and investors took an existing business is risk, and the company went bankrupt – this is normal. “To have the foreign currency leasing portfolio under conditions of double devaluation, I think few companies will survive,” said first Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank.
