The economy of the Russian Federation is quite resistant to the potential risks of further deterioration in the attitude of investors to the markets of developing countries, as well as sanctions risks, according to the information and analytical material of the Central Bank “Financial Stability Review”.
"Due to the presence of balanced macroeconomic indicators, the Russian economy is quite resistant to the potential risks of further deterioration in investor attitudes towards EME (emerging markets - ed.), As well as geopolitical (sanctions) risks," the document says.
At the same time, it is noted that when it is necessary to limit risks for financial stability, the Bank of Russia can use a set of tools for crisis management, including operations on the OFZ market and on the foreign exchange market.
"One way to support the OFZ market may be to allow financial organizations not to overestimate the value of these securities," the Central Bank said.

Experts interviewed by RIA Novosti noted that the wording in the state banks is vague, so it could potentially lead to a ban on dollar settlements.
