YEKATERINBURG. March 15 (Interfax) - Dmitry Pumpyansky, the former beneficiary of TMK and Sinara Group, has transferred his stake in Sinara Bank (formerly SKB Bank) to individuals connected to the companies affiliated with Sinara and TMK.

The European Commission has announced the imposition of sanctions against 14 businessmen who operate in "major sectors of the economy and are a significant source of funds for the Russian Federation" and their family members. Among them are Pumpyansky, his wife Galina and son Alexander.

At the end of February, SKB-Bank changed its name to Sinara Bank as part of a rebranding. The rebranding decision was made at an extraordinary meeting of shareholders on December 17, 2021. Integration with the parent brand, as noted, will reflect the connection of the financial division with the rest of Sinara Group.

Sinara Group was founded in 2001 and is a diversified company which incorporates enterprises from various industries. The priority lines of its business are transport engineering, financial services and real estate development.

SKB-Bank ranked 57th by assets in the Interfax-100 ranking prepared by the Interfax Center for Economic Analysis at the end of 2021.
