The influence of the in-layer magnetic and nonmagnetic impurities on the superconducting phases in layered systems is analyzed in detail. It is shown that the critical temperature is strongly depressed by the in-plane nonmagnetic impurities, and this depression can be connected to the presence of the interlayer pairing. The relevance of the deduced results for high-Tc materials is also discussed.
