Newsline: Denmark say embassy bank accounts in Russia frozen

Denmark’s bank accounts in Russia have been frozen, prompting the embassy to make payments in cash, officials said. The Danish foreign ministry said restrictions imposed by Russian authorities meant its embassy’s bank cards were blocked. “Increased documentation requirements prior to all payments mean concretely that the embassy has been paying salaries to employees and paying bills in cash for a long time,” the ministry said.
