China’s Huawei removes sanctioned banking apps from its store

The disappearance of AppGallery applications of several Russian banks, against which Western countries have imposed sanctions in response to Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, drew the attention of the publication Rozetked.

Promsvyazbank, VTB Online and Otkritie applications have been removed from the AppGallery store. The latter urged users not to uninstall the app if it is already installed. Otherwise, it can be downloaded on the bank’s website, specified in the “Opening”.

It should be noted that the VTB Multibonus application is still open for download in the AppGallery.

At the end of March, the App Store and Google Play removed the applications of banks VTB, Otkritie, Sovcombank, Promsvyazbank from their stores – all of them fell under US sanctions against Russia.

Representatives of the Chinese Huawei, which owns the AppGallery app store, said in March that they would decide on further work in Russia under Western sanctions. The Washington Post informedthat Huawei is at risk of falling under secondary US sanctions if it does not comply with the sanctions imposed against Russia.
