  • What Would a Forced Default by Russia Look Like?

    • 15.06.2022
    Russia is being prevented from borrowing when it doesn’t really need to borrow. The situation is very different from 2008, when the country last teetered on the brink of default.

    • 21.01.2020
    Mikhail Mishustin is replacing Dmitry Medvedev as prime minister of Russia after nearly a decade as director of the Federal Tax Service (FNS).

  • Trading Dollars for Yuan: How Wise Is Russia’s Reserves Management?

    • 11.02.2019
    The greatest risk, which will grow together with funds and reserves, is that of the open or creeping politicization of investment. In other words, the state will choose to invest in “friendly” but unstable currencies, as well as to extend loans to even “friendlier” states and companies.

    A new proposal to extend repayment of a Russian intergovernmental loan to Ukraine may ultimately suit all parties.
