We construct a consistent time series of balances and profit and loss accounts for a large cross-section of Russian banks. We describe our data collection and the procedures applied for controlling and aggregating the data. The resulting dataset constitutes a balanced and representative series of financial indicators covering the evolution of the Russian banking system over the last decade and offering great potential for further empirical research.
