ST. PETERSBURG, June 6 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's
Central Bank has not carried out a stress test of the country's
banking system, the deputy chairman told journalists at the St.
Petersburg economic forum on Saturday.
"We have not carried out a stress test, and have no
negative information. We think that the situation with the
banking system is completely acceptable," Alexei Ulyukaev said.
The comments follow a statement made by VTB chief Andrei
Kostin, who is reported to have told media that the Central
Bank had stress-tested Russian banks, but was holding back from
publishing the results as they were not that positive.
