International Reserves in Russia
Russia - International ReservesThe economy seems to have slipped into a severe contraction in the second quarter. Economic activity shrank in double-digits in April-May as strict lockdown measures forced closures of non-essential businesses, in turn prompting a broad-based downturn in the industrial sector. Similarly, nosediving retail sales in Q2 suggest private consumption plunged as the unemployment rate jumped in April-May while strict social distancing measures prompted households to postpone spending, thus gutting the services sector. Moreover, exports nosedived in April on depressed oil prices and eviscerated foreign demand. On a more positive note, however, the PMIs recovered in June, hinting at rebounding private-sector activity at the tail end of Q2. In politics, Russian voters have supported constitutional changes which, in addition to guaranteeing social payments and nationalist agenda amendments, reset presidential term limits giving President Vladimir Putin the chance to stay in office until 2036.
