«The completion of the reconstruction of the second branch of the bank on Moskovsky Prospect is a must for us, as in this part of the city there are a large number of customers. The geographical location of the Moskovsky branch will enable many of our customers to have access to our services in close proximity to their place of work or their home. Moskovsky Prospect is the 13th branch of the bank in Saint Petersburg.
