Russia's capital outflow more than doubles year-on-year in Jan-Feb

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia saw a net capital outflow of $9.8 billion in the first two months of 2018, up from $4.4 billion in the same period a year earlier, the central bank said on Tuesday.

In January-February, Russia also saw a current account surplus of $20.8 billion versus $14.5 billion in the same period in 2017. The increase in surplus was driven by the country’s stronger exports, the central bank said.
