Several dozen disgruntled Delta Credit bank customers briefly blocked Tverskaya, central Moscow’s equivalent of Oxford Street, in a protest on Wednesday evening.
On Thursday, dozens of protesters blocked doors and demanded meetings with top managers at branches of Bank of Moscow and VTB 24, both state-owned enterprises, and the Moscow headquarters of UniCrediBank, an Austrian-owned commercial lender, and Moskommertsbank, a subsidiary of a Kazakh bank. Raiffaisen Bank has also seen protests.
