“It turns out that the eurozone actions ... took place without discussions with Russia, so we will consider the issue of restructuring the [Cyprus] loan taking into account our participation in the joint actions with the European Union,” Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said.

Putin criticized the bank levy as unfair and setting a dangerous precedent.

“Putin said that such a decision, should it be made, would be unfair, unprofessional and dangerous,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
