The State Duma has received a bill, which, among other things, the Russian government proposes to classify information about gold and foreign exchange reserves, Russian media write. The authorities believe that such information should have the status of information that may fall under the concept of state secrets. According to the authors of the document, data on gold and foreign exchange reserves “should be protected from the possibility of it being obtained by unfriendly countries.”

Recall that after the start of Russia’s full-scale military invasion of Ukraine, Western countries froze about half of the gold and foreign exchange reserves of the Russian Central Bank for a total of about $415 billion.
