Exports from Russia of oil, gas, fertilizers and gold fell. This is reported by the publication MK with reference to the head of the analytical department of AMarkets Artem Deev.

At the moment, there is no official statistics on exported products and raw materials, and there is simply no exact understanding of how much all this is being sold by Russia. More accurate information has not been received since the spring of 2022.

Deev reports that there is also no access to statistics from the Ministry of Energy. As a rule, they monitor the production of gas, oil, coal and LNG. The expert noted that there is simply no option but to turn to open sources. This includes information from the Ministry of Finance on budget execution.

Deev also stressed that one should take into account the dynamics of energy prices on the world market and current quotes. At the moment, the Asian direction will not be able to fully compensate for the decline in exports to the European Union.

Former specialist in the field of economics Oleg Syrovatkin shared his opinion that a serious depreciation of the Russian currency will turn into growth this month. He drew attention to the fact that the most demanded currencies entered 2023 in much stronger positions than experts expected.
