Publication «Kremlin report» the United States has not had a significant impact on the financial stability of Russia, shows the dynamics of the index of financial stress of an ACRE.

The U.S. Treasury in the night of Tuesday published «the Kremlin list», which included almost the entire leadership of the Russian Federation and major Russian businessmen – more than 200 people. The list was prepared in accordance with the law «On combating the enemies of America through sanctions», which was adopted in the U.S. in the summer of 2017. It does not entail the automatic imposition of sanctions against these individuals, but implies that the restrictive measures can be introduced in the future.

«Today published the first part of the report of the Ministry of Finance of the USA about the sanctions against Russia have not had a significant impact on the financial stability of our country. S0 January, the index ACRA Financial Stress Index (FSI ACRA) grew by only 0.06 points compared to its yesterday’s level and remained at 0.4 points, which characterizes the state of Russia’s financial system as stable», — reported in ACRES.

According to analysts of the Agency, although the publication of the most expected by the investors part of the report, concerning restrictions on investments in public debt of the Russian Federation, has been postponed, the absence of significant restrictions and formal already published part led to the decline of profitability on Federal loan bonds. «Overall, the financial sector has become less sensitive to new sanctions. For example, 13 January 2017, when the United States decided to extend the sanctions, the index fell to insignificant 0.01%,» — said the Agency.

In compiling the index of an ACRE considers several financial factors: stock market volatility, the index value of shares the financial industry, the spread interbank loan rate liquidity provision of the Central Bank and others. The indicator below paragraph 1.11 points to calm the situation, 2.5 points, was adopted by the Agency as the threshold at which the system goes into a state of crisis.
