For every Russian bank we hand collect information on its registration, license revocation, liquidation, location changes, acquisitions, entrance to and exit from the Deposit Insurance System as well as state and foreign ownership. The data come from various sources freely available online. Yet, some of these data are hard to find or require some tedious work to organize. This paper brings the information together and makes it publicly available. Combined with Russian bank financial statements (freely available on Bank of Russia's website) this dataset provides ample possibilities for empirical research: on bank failure prediction models; on how acquisitions affect competition; on how bank efficiency varies with ownership; on how a particular event, such as acquisition, change of location or ownership, or acceptance to deposit insurance, affects bank behavior and performance.
