Subject. We consider financial parameters of the Russian Federation economy.
Objectives. The purpose is to assess the condition of the financial system of the Russian Federation based on the analysis of financial parameters of the national economy.
Methods. The study employs analytical and expert methods on the basis of the analysis of data of the Bank of Russia and the Federal State Statistics Service.
Results. The paper analyzes certain financial parameters of the Russian national economy, i.e. investments in fixed assets by fixed asset type, the country's external debt, the national currency rate of exchange, in comparison with indicators, characterizing the condition of the financial system, i.e. capitalization of commercial banks, monetary aggregates, the volume of reserves of the Bank of Russia. The analysis shows a better dynamics against that predicted at the beginning of the crisis period.
Conclusions. To justify the assessment of the condition of the financial system, it is necessary to rely on a deeper analysis of a wider range of indicators, both economic and financial.
