MOSCOW, Sept 20 (Reuters) - The former chairman of Russian lender B&N Bank said on Wednesday he was taking over at the bank again and would work with the Russian central bank on a rescue package.
Mikhail Shishkhanov said that he was in active negotiations with the central bank about accessing a bailout package.
The aim of the negotiations, he said, was to conduct a financial rehabilitation of the bank with the support of the central bank, and to ensure the stability of the Russian banking sector.
