HistoryEdit

In August 2005, it purchased Gazprom Media, the largest Russian media holding, which includes the NTV channel and Izvestia newspaper, from the bank's parent company Gazprom.

The bank was nominated in 2014 for the annual Emerging Market Bond Awards, hosted by EuroWeek.[4]

In July 2014, the United States Department of Treasury imposed sanctions on Gazprombank OAO that prohibit U.S. citizens from providing it with new financing.[5] In response, Gazprombank contracted former U.S. Senator Trent Lott to lobby on its behalf against the sanctions.[6]
