International reserves’ growth by 1.5% over the week was largely due to the positive exchange reappraisal, the regulator said.
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.
