Credit rating rationale. The issue represents senior unsecured debt of State Development Corporation "VEB.RF" (hereinafter, VEB.RF). Due to the absence of either structural or contractual subordination of the issue, ACRA regards it as equal to other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of VEB.RF in terms of priority. According to ACRA’s methodology, the credit rating of the issue is equivalent to that of VEB.RF, i.e. AAA(RU).

The credit rating of VEB.RF is at the level equivalent to the financial obligations of the Government of the Russian Federation based on the very high probability of extraordinary support from the Government due to its very high systemic importance for the Russian economy and the state’s decisive influence on VEB.RF’s creditworthiness. The standalone creditworthiness of VEB.RF is not a factor that affects its credit rating.
