Russia continues to lose tens of billions of dollars, setting new anti-capital outflow records

Thanks to the increased prices for energy raw materials, Russia was able to earn decent money in 2021. However, amid growing tensions between Moscow and the West, there is a sharp outflow of capital.

Something similar was observed at the end of 2014, when more than $ 150 billion was withdrawn from Russia, and at the end of 2008, when the outflow exceeded $ 130 billion.

On December 9, the Bank of Russia reported that for 11 months of 2021 (January-November), net capital outflow by the private sector amounted to $ 73,9 billion, which is 1,5 times more than the same period last year.

According to the Bank of Russia, the current account surplus of the country's balance of payments for 11 months amounted to $ 111,4 billion (the difference between foreign exchange flows to and from the country). Thus, money equivalent to 2/3 of the conditional foreign exchange profit left the Russian jurisdiction, i.e. money earned by the Russian Federation.

Currently, businesses are evacuating profits to offshore accounts, and citizens are buying foreign shares in unprecedented volumes, withdrawing savings from the ruble zone. At the same time, the greater the inflow of money into Russia (export earnings), the more intensive the outflow of capital abroad.

      There is no need to go beyond the walls of the Kremlin in search of enemies.

        Yes of course. lol
        You will also tell me - under what article is the "withdrawal of money" for the purchase of imports. From consumer goods to equipment and machines?
        Do you think that on a separate one? Not at all. And this is the most important figure.
        What does the construction of SP-2 look like? As a withdrawal of money abroad as payment for the services of builders. After all, most of the SP-2 was built by foreign companies. Before the sanctions. bully

      Yuri Palaznik. They are not enemies and not the fifth column - they are the masters of the country. They are not enemies of Russia, they are enemies of the people. What they sowed, they squeezed.

    Russia is pursuing a policy of de-dollarization, so Russia does not need dollars.

    All true.

    The media has been stirring up horror stories all year round.
    Kremlin chastised skyrocketing prices and added salaries to itself
    The Forbes list has grown exponentially.

    Bottom line: The Russians have once again been cheated ...

    And what's wrong with that? Garbage money, the so-called investors (really speculators), they have fulfilled their task, invested and made a profit, and the stability of the economy is not of interest to them. The less money the better.

    How could Russia earn that kind of money in a country of feudalism? In France, the king did not have the kind of money that the feudal lords had. Now, when the king began to fight against the feudal lords, then in the treasury of the king, as if the state, and the state is me! But this was not enough and had to tick from feudalism to capitalism, and never vice versa. Under capitalism, taxes remain in the country, and not vice versa.
