Fig. 25. Quarterly Dynamic of Loans Extended to Private Individuals In Q3 2011, the share of ML in the volume of consumer lending added 3.13 p.p. vs. Q2010 and hit 13.25% (Fig. 26). The volume of consumer lending in Q3 2011 accounted for Rb 1,466.78bn (the proportion of ML therein making up 13.25%), thus having outrun the precrisis peak of Rb 1,275.46bn. (the share of ML 14.77%) reported in Q2 2008 (Fig. 26). The increase rate of the respective share of ML trails behind the increase in the volume of consumer lending. The pre-crisis peak values of shares of ML and HL in the volume of consumer lending (Q408: 18,5% and 22.24%, accordingly) were not attained either.

Fig. 28. Dynamic of Remaining Mortgage Balances and Mortgage Arrears The year of 2011 saw increase both in remaining mortgage balances without outstanding payments and their proportion in the overall amount of the debt (Fig. 29). As 1 December 2011, the proportion of such arrears (Rb 1,324.185bn) in the total amount of the debt accounted for 92.91%, or down 5.08 p.p. vs. 1 January 2011.

The fall to 54.02% in 2010 in the share of the Top-Five assets-wise credit institutions in the overall volume of ML extended throughout the year was replaced between January and November 2011 with its rise up to 61.88% and redistribution of volumes between other groups (Fig. 31). In 2009, it was the third group which exhibited the greatest share of arrears (4.56%), while in 2010-2011 it was the second group whose mortgage portfolio proved the most risky one (4.65% 2010 and 5.12% in 2011). The second and third groups proved close to each other when it comes to volume of lending; however the third groups mortgage portfolio (2.80% of arrears) proved less risky than the second ones (5.1%).

6.6.6. Outlook for the Housing Market Forecasting the pricing dynamic on the Russian housing market in the previous years1 was built on the premise of the 2010 price stabilization and anticipation of the beginning of a price rally in 2011-2012; that said, the price rise was anticipated to be more moderate than in 200001 (with the trend taking the L-form).

The outlook for 2011 and beyond followed the methodology built upon the use of a mathematical model of correlation between price rise rates and the pace of increase of average per capita incomes for different types of markets2.

The data on the pace of increase of the populations real incomes and anticipated inflation was borrowed from the Medium-Term Forecast of Socio-Economic Development of RF for 2011 and 2012-133 and corresponding regional forecasts, with dynamics of main socio See the IET 2009 and 2010 annual reviews of the state of Russias economy.

Section Institutional Issues economic indicators therein being closer to average national figures, except for Perm krai1.

The type of the market assumed for 2011 was: for Moscow- an expanding one, for St. Petersburg, Moscow oblast stable in the first half of the year and expanding in the 2nd half-year, and for Perm (with account of a lower increase in real incomes and a higher inflation rate) stable throughout the year.

The comparison between the actual data and the outlook for 2011 shows that the latter proved true only partially.

In Moscow, the actual figures biased downward from the forecast, which should be ascribed to a smaller increase in the populations incomes vis--vis the governments forecast.

By contrast, real prices on the secondary housing market in Perm, Moscow oblast and St. Petersburg slightly outpaced the forecast ones, which can be attributed to the actual increase of the local residents incomes slightly outpacing the forecast value.

The outlook for 2012 was calculated following the same methodology and using the original data on the rate of increase in the populations incomes, as stipulated in the said Mediumterm program (Fig. 35).

6.7. Military economy and the military reform in Russia The transition to a new image of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation that started back in 2008 and continued through 2011 was clearly planned, as the Russian top military leaders affirmed. In practice, however, these plans proved to be unbaked and required online corrections and removal of deficiencies.

Likewise was the financial and economic support to the military construction. The encouraging statement made by Finance Minister A. Kudrin on the eve of 2011 that the ministries and departments will receive 98% of the budget expenditures for their full disposal1 have come to nothing. A new government arms program (GAP) for 2011 2020 signed by President D. Medvedev on the last day of 2010, was not aligned, as appears, with a regular federal target program for upgrading the military-industrial complex that had not been adopted in 2011. It is obvious that these events could not but affect negatively the quality of planning and execution of the state defense order (SDO) for 2011.

The 2011 results in the military economy and the military reform demonstrate that there are more than enough grounds to talk about serious problems and contradictions at the new stage of the military reform in the RF in addressing five key tasks set by President D. Medvedev more than three years ago2.

6.7.1. Structural transformations of the Armed Forces Even a recap of the organizational and structural transformations in the RF Armed Forces that took place during the last three years makes a great impression. Late 2008, a new military administrative division of the RF was established: four military districts were set up instead of six and accordingly four united strategic commands (USC) were established to control all military forces based on the territory of such districts except strategic forces. At the top levels of the military hierarchy, a tree-tier command and control system was set up: the district USC - operative command (armies) brigades and other military units. In 2009, the structure of the Armed Forces changed from the division-regiment based to the brigade-based one (except the Airborne Landing Forces and Strategic Missile Forces)3.

As a result of functioning of the Armed Forces in their new structure in 2010, a number of issues was identified including maintenance of the AF combat readiness at a high level and having a mixed compulsory and voluntary system of enlisted and junior command personnel.

The establishment of Aerospace Troops (AST) as an independent unit is a major structural innovation of 2011. To some extent this may be considered as a restoration of the ex-USSR Armed Forces type called national Air Defense Forces.

The division of the command and control functions into two branches during the last three years was another important structural innovation: the first branch was in charge for comprehensive support (Russias Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces) while the second branch in charge of the Armed Forces buildup, planning of troops employment and V.

Section Institutional Issues their combat training. The first branch is staffed mainly with civilian specialists (according to the practices of the civilized states) while the second with military persons. Note that the move to this structure that was selected back in May 1992 as the most reasonable for Russia took almost 20 years. At that time it was announced at a Joint Staff conference as a target set by the then President of Russia Boris Eltsin by the top military leaders: Minister of Defense P.
