How has the crisis influenced the banking sector? Why is the Central Bank increasing its requirements from bankers? How many banks does the economy need altogether? These were the topics discussed by Mikhail Kovrigin, director of the Central Bank of Russia’s Banking Regulation and Oversight Department, at a meeting with members of the HSE Banking Institute.

Vassilisa Makarova, Associate Professor at the HSE's Department of Financial Markets and Financial Management (Faculty of Economics, St. Petersburg), and Andrei Krylov, postgraduate student at St. Petersburg State University of Economics, examined the controversial relationship between Russian banks and industry.

Toxic assets problem in the banks is comprehensively discussed in Russia.  "Russia does not have a major toxic asset problem in the banks. Russian banks were not really involved in buying these derivative securities," Martin Gilman, Professor at the Higher School of Economics, said.
