The co-founder of the Revolut FinTech startup, Nikolay Storonsky Jr., has renounced his Russian citizenship, the Russian edition of Forbes business magazine reported on Oct. 31, with reference to a company representative.

 “Nik renounced Russian citizenship some time ago,” the company said.

The representative stressed that Storonsky had renounced his Russian citizenship long time before Ukraine imposed sanctions against his father, Gazprom Promgas CEO Nikolay Storonsky.

The company also noted Storonsky’s position on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“He still strongly calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities,” the report said.

After the start of the war, Revolut offered assistance to all Ukrainian employees with the movement, and closed all of its offices in Russia. Russian employees were also offered assistance with relocation.

Ukraine imposed sanctions against 256 Russian businessmen and their relatives on Oct. 20.

In particular, sanctions were introduced against Roman Abramovich, Arkady Rotenberg, Gennady Timchenko, Yury Kovalchuk, as well as Gazprom Promgas CEO Nikolay Storonsky.

The Revolut FinTech startup was founded by Nikolay Storonsky Jr. and Ukrainian citizen Vlad Yatsenko in 2015.
