MOSCOW, November 26. /TASS/. Russia’s international reserves grow $0.4 bln over the week from November 13 to 20 and totaled $364.5 bln, the Central Bank said on Thursday.
"International reserves rose under influence of foreign currency liquidity return by resident banks within REPO operations framework and gold monetization against remaining negative exchange rate and market revaluation," the Central Bank said in its comment.
Russia’s international reserves are highly liquid foreign assets available with the Bank of Russia and the Russian Government. They comprise foreign currency, Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), a reserve position in the International Monetary Fund and monetary gold.
