1 Relative banking sector indicators are impacted by ruble exchange movements, as well as banking licence terminations (excluding licence terminations following reorganisations) over the reporting period. Consequently, to enable a more accurate presentation of key banking sector performance indicators, the data strip out currency effects for credit institutions in operation as of the reporting date (including previously reorganised banks).
