1 As far as the time structure of the Russian banks aggregate credit portfolio is concerned, one could note a rise in the share of the most short-term loans at the expense of the fall in the share of loans extended for the term over 1 year.

The provision of credits for the period under 3 months to a great extent expanded in the case of Rb.-denominated loans (the respective share of loans extended for the term under 3 months in the overall amount of Rb.-denominated loans grew As of the end of month from 21.7% to 24.5%). However, as long as the 1. loans to enterprises-residents structure of forex-denominated loans is concerned, 2. obligations to non-residents the share of short-term credits grew from 8.0 up to 10.1%.
