Following the reports made by some US media the Russian Direct Investment Fund considers it necessary to make the following statement:
“RDIF focuses on cooperation with international partners for the purpose of joint investments in line with its mandate. Co-investments and meetings with RDIF are not restricted and are not subject to US sanctions or any other restrictions. RDIF always operates in full compliance with relevant regulations and legislation and its operations do not violate sanctions.
