MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian lender VTB’s share in En+ Group rose to 22.27 percent from 7.65 percent, the bank said on Monday after the United States lifted sanctions on EN+ and other Russian firms linked to oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

The transaction was carried out on Jan. 26 and VTB will now be able to vote with a 6.25 percent stake in EN+, the lender said.
