  • The European Commission has revealed the conditions for unfreezing Russian investments. Experts warned that even if there are clear criteria for an agreement, it will be difficult to reach an agreement.

  • IKEA has completed online sales. The shopping cart, shopping list and personal account on the company website are no longer available. IKEA stores will remain closed and will only be open for the issuance of completed orders, as well as for the return and exchange of merchandise. Orders will be delivered in August-September.
  • Sberbank changed the name of the smart device developer – SberDevices was renamed SalyutDevices in July.
