Most of the capital outflow in the first quarter of this year could be explained by the “public’s demand for foreign currency and the unwillingness of exporters to sell foreign currency proceeds,” the Finance Ministry official said.
Capital outflow trends at the beginning of 2014 are similar to the developments during the crisis period of 2008-2009, which registered an said up in the demand for foreign currency,” he said.
The latest data “demonstrate a steady growth of ruble deposits and a reversal of cash foreign currency dynamics in our country,” he said.
Russia’s Economic Development Ministry has said it expects a sharp decline in capital outflow in the second-fourth quarters of 2014 after $63.7 billion left Russia in the first quarter of this year. The ministry forecasts capital outflow to slow to $7 billion in the second quarter, $9 billion in the third and $10 billion in the fourth quarter.
