Abstract

Judging from the year-end results of 2018, the RF Central Bank pointed out the highest (relative to the entire statistical observation period) outflow of foreign direct investment (FDI) from the capital of Russian companies, amounting to $ 6.46bn. The plunge in the inflow of foreign investment in Russia is in line with the worldwide downward trend of capital investment (by 19%)1. The stimuli for FDI inflow into Russia are on the decline due to the presence of political risks, including those associated with economic sanctions.

Keywords: Russian economy, foreign investment
