1. To recognize members of the Supervisory Board of the Bank: Esko Tapani Aho, Leonid Boguslavsky, Aleksander Kuleshov, Gennady Melikyan, and Nadya Christina Wells as persons fully compliant with the independence criteria (independent directors).

2. To recognize member of the Supervisory Board of the Bank Nikolay Kudryavtsev as an independent director based on the recommendation of the HR and Remuneration Committee of the Supervisory Board (the Committee) despite his meeting the formal criterion of affiliation with the state, which does not significantly affect the director's ability to act reasonably and in good faith in the interests of the Bank and its shareholders.

By adopting this resolution, the Supervisory Board of the Bank emphasizes the exceptional nature of the resolution, given the fact that N. Kudryavtsev:

- is not a person affiliated with the Bank, a substantial shareholder (the Bank of Russia), a substantial counterparty or competitor of the Bank;

- as Rector of the Federal State Autonomous Higher Education Institution Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (National Research University) is appointed to the position by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation in line with the Charter. That said, he does not represent the interests of the state and is not obliged to vote on directives of the Russian Federation, an entity of the Russian Federation, or a municipal unit;

- for one year prior to election to the Supervisory Board of the Bank, was not (and currently is not) a public or municipal officer, or a person occupying any office in public authorities, or an employee of the Bank of Russia;

- has an impeccable reputation and is recognized by academia in Russia and abroad.

The Supervisory Board believes that the vast professional experience and the competences of N. Kudryavtsev, which he acquired inter alia in the course of his long (more than 10 years) service as independent director on the board of directors / committee for science and technology of the largest oilfield services company Schlumberger Limited, will be very significant for the Bank and will help the director form independent opinions on matters in the remit of the Supervisory Board of the Bank.

N. Kudryavtsev had signed the Declaration of an Independent Director according to the form recommended by the Exchange before this resolution was adopted by the Supervisory Board of the Bank.
