: What’s behind Russia’s jaunty mood? Way more than Trump, says this bank CEO

For all the talk about the Trump era leading to cozier relations with Russia, the new U.S. president hasn’t completely won over every CEO in Moscow.

Everyone should wait and see what actually happens, and Russia’s peppier mood is based on more than just Donald Trump’s move into the White House.

So says Oliver Hughes, chief executive of Tinkoff Bank, a Russian company that bills itself as the world’s largest stand-alone online bank in terms of number of customers (it has 5 million).

“There’s an expectation — which I hope is going to be fulfilled — that under the Trump regime, there’ll be a sea change in relations towards Russia,” Hughes said.
