Some $750 billion has been moved from Russia in the last quarter-century, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.

Russia’s net capital outflow, typically used as a measure of economic or political stability, has increased in the past two years, reaching $67.5 billion in 2018. Some economists forecast the trend will slow down to $30 billion in 2019.


“To rein in capital flight over the long term, the government needs to crack down further on corruption and put an end to what even President Vladimir Putin describes as predatory law enforcement,” Bloomberg suggested.
