The interest rate is 0.1% from the average quarterly balances on individuals and individual entrepreneurs.

That is why we need to discuss the increase of deposit insurance level. I would announce particular figures at the moment. At the same time the approximate level of this insurance should be not less than 1.5 million rubles. I would like to stress that it is essential to start this discussion as soon as possible”, - says the First Deputy of   the Head of Central Bank.
