Medvedev Calls for More Regulation of Russian Consumer Lending

Jan. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev called for additional protection for consumers taking out loans, saying they need more rights in a market dominated by financial institutions.

Citizens need protection from the “enslaving conditions” banks and other financial institutions impose on them in loan agreements, Medvedev told a government meeting in Saransk in central Russia today.

“The price of abuse is too high,” he said. “Banks themselves aren’t interested in preserving this situation.”
