Milestone marks the end of VEON's three year compliance monitorship

Amsterdam, 31 October 2019 - VEON Ltd. (NASDAQ, Euronext Amsterdam: VEON) today announces that the Deferred Prosecution Agreement ('DPA') entered into on 18 February 2016 with the US Department of Justice has concluded. This marks the end of VEON's compliance monitorship, conducted in connection with the DPA and the company's settlement with the US Securities & Exchange Commission.

VEON is pleased that its commitment to ethics, compliance and internal controls, along with the improvements it has made over the past three years, have enabled it to successfully complete the DPA and monitorship in a timely manner. VEON will continue to ensure that its robust anti-corruption programme is effective and sustainable over the long-term.

With the conclusion of the DPA, the US Department of Justice has filed a motion with the US District Court for the Southern District of New York to dismiss the charges deferred by the DPA.

Ursula Burns, VEON's Chairman and CEO, said: 'This is a significant milestone for our company which demonstrates the strong progress we have made in building a robust and sustainable compliance programme across our business. A culture of ethics and compliance is now reflected in our structures, procedures and daily ways of working.

Key to strengthening our internal controls and compliance culture was the appointment of our Group General Counsel Scott Dresser in 2014 and our Group Chief Compliance Officer Josh Drew in 2017. Their leadership and the diligence of their teams have been essential in leading the company successfully through the entire process and monitorship. We remain committed to ensuring ethics and compliance underscores everything we do, and I am proud of the hard work by our employees to ensure we, as a Group, are working at the highest standards.'
