Société Générale announced on Monday that it would end its activities in Russia by selling its entire stake in Rosbank.

Very involved in the country, the French bank was exposed to the tune of 18.6 billion euros, including 15.4 billion for Rosbank, a heavyweight in the Russian banking sector in which it was the majority shareholder.

At the opening of the Paris Stock Exchange, the Societe Generale title took more than 5%.

The group announced Monday morning in a press release that it had signed "an agreement" with the Russian investment fund Interros Capital "with a view to selling [him] all of its stake" in Rosbank as well as its insurance subsidiaries in Russia - a sale which will have a negative impact of 3.1 billion euros in its accounts.
