Revolut Denies Claims of Improperly Acquiring Bank License

UK based digital bank Revolut has strongly denied claims that they interfered in Lithuanian politics when acquiring their banking license; Revolut was granted a European Banking License in Lithuania this past December and a member of their Parliament made the claims of impropriety; the startup denies any claims they are acting on behalf of Russian interests because their founder and CEO has a Russian background; the company takes the allegations seriously and believes this should not be taken lightly, calling the claims fearmongering.
