The resolution of Binbank may require between RUB 100 and 150 billion
Binbank has asked the Bank of Russia to consider resolving it through the Banking Sector Consolidation Foundation. The decision to go ahead with the resolution means that the cost of saving the bank is estimated to be lower than the expenses of paying all the insurance compensations and the direct losses from the domino effect among the bank's creditors. "On the whole, the most optimistic estimates suggest that resolving Binbank will require between RUB 100 and RUB 150 billion," Analytical Center expert Daniil Nametkin commented on the situation in an interview for the Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

Program to Help Mortgage Borrowers will Only Partially Improve the Situation
The government is resuming its program of offering help to mortgage borrowers.

A total of RUB 2 billion has been allocated to the program. "This can only partially improve the situation with foreign currency-denominated loans," the Analytical Center's expert Natalia Safina told a Rossiyskaya Gazeta correspondent.
