"But this year we have seen that the growth has been more moderate than during the same period last year. This is due to the credit policies pursued by banks, which in the past year have severely restricted lending, tightening requirements for borrowers. At the moment, we do not see the prerequisites to a sharp increase in retail lending this year, therefore, most likely, while maintaining the current macroeconomic situation, the share of overdue loans will continue to grow at a moderate pace until the end of the year", he said.
