But restrictions will be in place on financial transactions to prevent people from draining their accounts. Before its collapse, Cyprus's banking sector grew to nearly eight times the size of the country's economy - mainly on the back of substantial deposits from Russia. This sparked accusations that the country was being used by Russian criminals to launder their money. Over the past week, the government in Moscow has criticised Europe's handling of the crisis in Cyprus. Many Russian depositors are expected to lose money from a tax on accounts over 100-thousand euros in both Bank of Cyprus and Laiki. Even so, Russian millionaire businessman Andrey Dashin told the Associated Press in an interview that he doesn't believe his fellow countrymen would rush to pull businesses or money out of the country once banks reopen. "For me, it's quite natural to start a new business in crisis," he said. The deal was finally reached in Brussels early on Monday, and imposes severe losses on deposits of over 100-thousand euros (128-thousand US dollars) in the country's two largest banks, Laiki and Bank of Cyprus.
