19 January, 2019  // In 2018, Russia climbed to the 5th place in the world gold reserves displacing China. They increased by 14.9% (275 tons) and amounted to 2,112 tons. The main reason is the diversification of international reserves and almost complete rejection of US government bonds (the amount decreased to 14 billion USD from 176 in 2010).
