Highest Deposit Interest Rates in Europe

I was searching online some information about interest rates for savings accounts in European Union for the year of 2014. Basically I was doing this "research" because I found that in some member states interest rates for savings accounts are pathetically modest.

Taking into account that interest rates in Georgia are about 6% for savings in National currency (Georgian Lari) and about 2. 5% for USD/EUR. Overlooking all bank offers in Georgia, I did find an interest rates even of 9% (National currency) and 5% (USD/EUR).
