Debt of one resident of Russia to banks

According to a study carried out by RIA Rating, the total debt of one Russian citizen to banks exceeds 300 thousand rubles, while the most heavily credited regions of the country at the end of 2021 are Kalmykia and Tuva, the least — Ingushetia, Chechnya and Dagestan.

The population’s debt load, which can be defined as the ratio of debt to wages, is growing quite rapidly: from 45% in 2018 to 55% at present.

In Moscow, where almost a tenth of the country’s population lives, the debt-to-wage ratio is 34.8%, and in St. Petersburg — 55.1%. Despite high salaries in large cities, good opportunities for obtaining credit resources and expensive real estate in the main agglomerations of Russia, the debt burden is low.

The pace of retail lending is expected to slow down in 2022, but may still outpace wages. According to experts, the increase in lending to individuals will be less than 14%, against the increase in salaries of 7-10%.

In a number of regions where there is already a high debt load, residents may face economic problems due to the need to give a significant part of their income to pay off debts and pay interest.
