MOSCOW, April 12 Russia's central bank does not
expect a large capital outflow in future, and the current
account surplus will decline, central bank official Alexander
Morozov said on Wednesday.
Morozov was answering a question as to whether the central
bank would raise its capital outflow forecast for this year
after the central bank data on Tuesday showed a larger than
expected capital outflow in the first quarter.
The central bank also said on Tuesday that current account
surplus totaled $22.8 billion in the first three months of the
year compared with $12.9 billion in the same period of 2016.
