Abstract

According to statistics published in October 2019, Russia maintained a relatively high level of funding programs in the field of international development assistance in 2018. A large share (63%) of Russian aid was provided as in the past on a bilateral basis, and the largest recipients remained Cuba, DPRK, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Moreover, in addition to direct assistance, Russia finances these countries also in the framework of cooperation with international organizations. In 2018, distribution of aid was mainly related to healthcare and food security as well as to debt relief which exceeded $ 400 million.
