The Internet bank became inaccessible for operations, ATMs did not have cash. In the offices of the bank began to accumulate a queue of hundreds of people, but the situation has not cleared up. Heated nervousness and various rumors circulated in Whatsapp-groups, which, in particular, linked the collapse of the bank with the resignation of the former head of Yakutia Yegor Borisov, as well as the acquisition of a controlling stake in the bank by an unknown beneficiary with a view to his subsequent bankruptcy.

The republic's leadership kept silent for the first days, thus generating even more ridiculous rumors: the money was stolen from the Moscow branch's cash department, and law enforcement agencies simply do not seek them, because they got their "own".
