MOSCOW (Reuters) - The CEO of Russia’s VTB Bank (VTBR.MM), Andrey Kostin, said on Wednesday the bank was ready to give aluminium producer Rusal more time to make repayments on its loans, TASS news agency reported.

Russian metals tycoon Oleg Deripaska, who was sanctioned by the United States in response to Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and other activities, owns a 48 percent stake in Rusal.

Kostin has said VTB stopped lending to Deripaska.
