Challenging current economic situation resulted in the growth of interest rates (due to the key rate increase) and the problems in the stock market. These circumstances ensured growing attractiveness of short-term ruble instruments with fixed yields, which ended in the growth in the amount of funds in bank deposits of individuals and enterprises. The improved supervisory regulation by the Central Bank of Russia and its policy on establishing bank capital reserves ensured the stability of the domestic banking system during 2022. However, if necessary, the government and the Central Bank may resort to considering additional capitalization of banks by purchasing secondary offering of preferred shares at the NWF expense.

Key words: Russian banking sector, banking resources, banks’ customer base, households’ resources, corporate resources, Bank of Russia.
