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.
