The agency stated that the upgrade on the Bank reflects its "lessening dependence on trading

improve, enlarging business opportunities for Russian banks and reducing their extremely high
credit risk linked to corporate clients."

its risk profile. The success of the banks recently revised strategy to refocus operations on
