* 1.Introduction
Banking system is the most important part of the financial system of Ukraine. It is often defined simply as an aggregate of banks functioning in the economy of the country. By such a definition the banking system represents a mechanistic combination of banks without beforehand defined goals, own specific traits and without carrying out of self-dependent aims.

The information could be interesting for potential investors, shareholders and common people. 2. The Structure of Banking System of Ukraine
