MOSCOW, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s government and the Central Bank see their objective as adjusting the financial system by 2017-2018 to the Basel III requirements.
Shuvalov continued saying “we do not have a purpose of leaving only big banks.”
“The objective is, first of all, to remove from the market those involved in suspicious operations, which in this country is a part of illegal business,” he said. “Secondly, we should not have banks with insufficient capital. In this respect, both for the Bank of Russia and for the government this year will be complicated.”
“Anyway, we should have a different quality of reliable banks,” he said.
The Nadezhnost (translated as 'reliability') bank was registered in the city of Kurgan in 1993. The bank had a perpetual license from the Central Bank for operations in rubles and foreign currency. It was a member of the obligatory insurance system.
The Bank of Russia (central bank) has revoked the license following the Company’s failure to observe federal laws on the banking activities and the central bank’s regulations.
The National Clearing Company did not comply with requirements for reports to the Bank of Russia; it was involved in doubtful cashless operations, including certain services to foreign clients. Over 2013, the Company transferred to foreign clients under faked documents over $320 million, the central bank reports.
