External debt grew in Russia
In 2019, Russia's external debt grew by 5,9% - by $ 26,8 billion. As of January 1, 2020, the debt was $ 481,5 billion.
According to the press service of the Central Bank, the main role in the growth of debt was played by the acquisition by non-residents of sovereign securities in Russian rubles and in foreign currency.
At the same time, the external debt of the private sector remained practically unchanged. As the regulator notes, the growth of liabilities of other sectors, mainly in the framework of direct investment relations, was offset by a reduction in banks' external debt.
