Dutch bank ING provided an update on Friday on its exposure in Russia and Ukraine, saying that about 700 million euros ($771 million) in outstanding loans were "affected" by "new sanctions on (Russian) specific entities and individuals" by Europe and the United States.

In a statement composed of bullet points and pictures, it did not specify where that 700 million euros is. It said it has 5.3 billion euros in loans to Russian borrowers, representing 0.9% of its total group loan book. In Ukraine it said it had 500 million in loans, representing 0.1% of its loan book.
