This paraphrase of Oleksandr Turchynov in is what got me confused about Raiffeisen Investment AG, a company that operates Rosukrenergo jointly with Gazprom.

Yesterday, I wrote that, allegedly, it had nothing to do with Raiffeisen Bank - because I was too busy to question what I read in two pieces (June 17 and Sept. 15, in Russian):

According to Turchynov, Raiffeisen Investment AG has nothing to do with Raiffeisenbank and acts on behalf of some individual or company.

In fact, Raiffeisen Investment AG is part of Raiffeisen Banking Group; their statement regarding yesterday's agreement is here. Turchynov must've meant the bank's Ukrainian or Kyiv branch when he made his comment.
