Foreign Investment Rises 32 Percent, Net Outflow Remains

Foreign investment into Russia in the first half of 2013 was $99 billion, a 32 percent rise from the same period a year ago, according to the State Statistics Service.

Of this, $12 billion was direct foreign investment, Prime reported.

However, Russian investment abroad increased by 80 percent to $126 billion, resulting in a net outflow of $27 billion during the period.

"As at June 30, 2013, there was $370 billion of accumulated foreign capital in the Russian economy, 11 percent more than at the end of the same period last year," the State Statistics Service said.


… 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.
