The Greek banks lose deposits to nearly 2 billion EUR per week. If the rate at which withdraw of funds continue for next 14 weeks will melt and assets against which vaults can get cheap loans from the European Central Bank (ECB). The calculations are based on the assumption that financing for up to 108 billion EUR provided by the ECB and the Bank of Greece, Greek banks have already used 80 billion EUR. Thus vaults had only 28 billion EUR.

The documents were provided in the 2012-2013 period in order to recapitalize the Greek banks.
Since the beginning of the year the total amount withdrawn from the banks cash equivalent of 21 billion EUR. Only about 17 billion EUR were withdrawn in January.
The sources from the banking community in the Mediterranean country told Reuters that a day be drawn between a 300 million EUR and 350 million EU.
