MOSCOW, December 11. /TASS/. The Russian Central Bank has raised its forecast on capital outflow in 2015 to $120 billion from $99 billion, Central Bank chief Elvira Nabiullina said on Thursday.
In mid-November, the regulator worsened its forecast on capital outflow in 2014 from $90 billion to $128 billion.
According to the latest forecast of Russia’s Economic Development Ministry, capital outflow may range from $90 billion to $120 billion in 2014.
In the first half of 2014, Russia’s capital outflow reached $74.6 billion, including $48.8 billion in the first quarter and $25.8 billion in the second quarter.
Russia’s Finance Ministry expects capital outflow at $60-80 billion in 2015 in a pessimistic scenario.
The ministry’s optimistic scenario assumes an oil price fall to $80 per barrel from peak levels while the pessimist scenario predicts oil prices to plunge to $60 per barrel.
