1 Relative banking sector indicators are impacted by ruble exchange rate movements, as well as licence revocations and cancellations (excluding licence cancellations following reorganisations). Consequently, to enable a more accurate representation of key banking sector performance indicators, the data excludes the currency effects for credit institutions in operation as of the latest reporting date (including previously reorganised banks).
