Q2 Capital Outflow Slows

Capital outflows from Russia slowed sharply in the second quarter, reflecting a combination of technical and seasonal factors and a lessening of political tension, economists said.

Large outflows in the first quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarter of last year also coincided with a fraught election period, marked by large opposition protests. The decline in outflows follows Vladimir Putin's re-election to the presidency in March.

Central Bank figures released this week showed that net private-sector capital outflows fell to $9.5 billion in the April-June quarter, down from $33.9 billion in the first three months of this year.

… 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.
