MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. The Russian Central Bank has approved the list of 10 systemically important banks, which will be subjected to additional equity and liquidity requirements in accordance with Basel III international standard, the Bank said Tuesday.
The list of systemically important banks includes UniCredit Bank, Gazprombank, VTB, Alfa Bank, Sberbank, Otkritie Bank, Rosbank, Promsvyazbank, Raiffeisenbank and the Russian Agricultural Bank.
The share of these banks account for over 60% of the total assets of the Russian banking sector, the Central Bank said in a statement.
