The Ministry of Finance named three "system-forming" banks which are entrusted to play a leading role in overcoming of crisis, - Sberbank, VTB and Gazprombank. For this purpose the Ministry will give them 1,12 billion roubles. Sberbank will get 754,2 billion roubles, VTB - 268,5 billion roubles and Gazprombank - 103,9 billion roubles.

Central Bank decided to repeat experience of 2004 when investors in the mass order got away money from banks and the market of interbank crediting was paralysed because of mistrust of its participants to each other. Regulator, as well as then, lowered requirements on obligatory reserves which banks kept on the accounts of Central Bank on 4% up to 1,5-4% depending on the one who gave money to the banks. It, according to Central Bank, will liberate about 300 billion roubles. Besides Central Bank is ready to finance banks under smaller pledges and give them every day up to 500 billion roubles.

Nevertheless, Central Bank of the Russian Federation composed "red list" which includes 15 banks which undergoes the most serious problems with performance of credit obligations to contractors and require urgent financial help. All 15 banks from the list enter TOP-50. That is situation with bank system in general and in Russia in particular is in critical condition.
