MOSCOW, Feb 2 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs central bank has revoked banking licenses from Moscow-based PartnerCapitalBank, ranked 469th by assets as of January 1, and Raschetno-Kreditny Bank, ranked 184th, the regulator said on Friday.

The bank was also involved in dubious transit transactions, while its management and owners did not take efficient measures to normalize its operations.
