Sayenko Kharenko acted as Ukrainian legal counsel to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) on providing a synthetic financing in local currency to three Ukrainian banks under the EU4Business initiative, namely:
– EUR 20 million equivalent to ProCredit Bank Ukraine
– EUR 25 million equivalent to Raiffeisen Bank Aval

The funds will be on-lent by these partner banks to small and medium enterprises for investments and working capital purposes.
Sayenko Kharenko’s team was led by counsel Igor Lozenko and included associate Vira Pankiv and junior associate Oleksandra Maksymenko.
