Ukrainian Bank Crisis

KIEV -- Prime Minister Valery Pustovoitenko said Tuesday he was worried by the state of Ukraine's banking system and even the largest banks were causing him concern.

"More than a quarter of registered commercial banks fall under the category of problem banks, and a third of those are designated as bankrupt," Pustovoitenko told businessmen.

He said most worrisome was a worsening in operations of the biggest banks, which represent three-quarters of banking operations in the ex-Soviet state.
