EXPLANATORY NOTE
DEREGISTRATION OF UNSOLD SECURITIES
This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 (this “Post-Effective Amendment”), filed by QIWI Plc (the “Company”), is being filed to deregister all of the unsold securities of the Company that had been registered for issuance under the Registration Statement on Form F-3 (Registration Number 333-204728) filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on June 4, 2015 (the “Registration Statement”), pertaining to the registration of 6,424,097 of the Registrant’s class B shares, because the Company no longer qualifies as a “well-known seasoned issuer,” as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
The Company, by filing this Post-Effective Amendment, hereby terminates the effectiveness of the Registration Statement and deregisters any and all securities registered but unsold under the Registration Statement as of the date hereof.



SIGNATURES
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act, the undersigned registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing this Post-Effective Amendment to Form F-3 and has duly caused this Post-Effective Amendment to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, on April 20, 2017.
