A Russian court on Monday suspended the corporate rights of the Cyprus-registered holding companies of private lender Alfa Bank and its insurance arm Alfastrakhovanie, according to a court filing.

The finance ministry earlier said that “anti-Russia” sanctions against these entities were impeding Alfa Bank and Alfastrakhovanie’s activities on the Russian financial market.
