Elimination of small banks now pursued by the regulator is aimed to restructure the financial system, consolidate the banking sector and clean it of criminal players. According to CBR governor Elvira Nabiullina, “licences are only revoked if a bank core business is servicing shadow or criminal economy or if a bank it goes through serious financial problems”.446 Russian credit organizations lost licences in 2000-2013; 43 had their licences revoked since the beginning of the year. They were mostly located in North Caucasus, Moscow and Siberia.
The Central Bank is now compiling a list of systemically important banks that will enjoy the regulator’s special attention. The volume of assets, retail deposits and deals on the interbank market are the criteria.
