The share of Russian non-residents' investments in Federal Loan Bonds (FLB) decreased by 1.8% in March 2021. After the corresponding changes, it stands at 20.2%, according to the Bank of Russia.

Moscow, for its part, is developing a series of measures to mitigate the impact of US sanctions against sovereign debt.
