The rates on personal deposits in Russian banks are still going up. In the second decade of December  the maximal interest rate on ruble deposits reached 9,42%. The results of the traditional monitoring among ten Russian banks, attracting the highest volumes of deposits, were presented by the Central Bank of Russia. At the beginning of December the maximal deposit rate reached 9,32% of interest per annum.
