(Update: Revises stock price to reflect the market close.)

Continuing the process of divesting itself from all four corners of the globe,

American International Group

(AIG) - Get Report

is saying "nyet" to Russia.

The insurer said it will sell 98% of its shares in its consumer-finance operations in Russia to Banque PSA Finance SA, a subsidiary of PSA Peugeot Citroën Group.

Banque PSA Finance also holds an option, not exercisable until March 2011, to buy the remaining 2%. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Russian unit, OOO AIG Bank, was created last June and has a dozen employees.

This is yet another move by AIG to sell off assets to repay the massive $180 billion government bailout. Last week the company said it plans to

spin off two life-insurance businesses

as part of a plan to repay $25 billion of debt.

Other pieces up for grabs include:

Stowe Mountain Resort

and

International Lease Finance

.

Shares in the company closed Monday trading down almost 9%, to finish at $1.33.
