Several noisy scandals erupted around, albeit not the largest, but fairly well-known banks that widely attracted money from the population. Among them are Chara-Bank, LLD-Bank, Favorit Bank and some others. Even a new type of public association has emerged – unions for the protection of duped depositors (here, however, we must pay tribute to the contribution of non-banking financial companies and JSC MMM personally). Theoretically, a slight loosening of the government’s fiscal policy this fall could mean some breathing room for banks. But overall, the outlook is bleak.
