MOSCOW, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Sberbank SBER03.MM saw retail desposit inflows of 18.5 billion roubles ($660.7 million) in the first week of December, an official from Russia's largest lender said on Wednesday. Russian banks saw sizeable deposit outflows in October, as account holders were unnerved by the global finanical crisis and a weakening of the rouble versus the dollar RUB=.
But officials have said that the situation has since improved. Around half of retail accounts in Russia are with state-controlled Sberbank. (Reporting by Dmitry Sergeyev, writing by Toni Vorobyova; editing by Maria Kiselyova)
