Net Capital Outflow Slows

Russia’s net capital outflow will ease as companies step up foreign borrowing, according to a draft Central Bank policy document obtained by Bloomberg on Wednesday.

“In the second half of 2010, we expect foreign liabilities of corporations and banks to increase, slowing net outflow of private capital to $8.7 billion by the end of the year,” the Central Bank said in the document. The Central Bank declined to comment.

Net capital inflows are likely to total $12 billion next year, assuming that the Urals blend of crude averages $75 a barrel, the bank estimates.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
