The establishment of a wave of new regulatory measures against credit rating agencies operating in Russia, in conjunction with pressures emanating from International sanctions, has resulted in an exodus of the established rating agencies, like Moody’s and Fitch. In their place, the recently established ‘Analytical Credit Rating Agency’ is attempting to provide a different approach to the rating of Russian debt.
