OREANDA-NEWS. The Russian Federation in the spring of this year has reduced the number of investment contributions to USA government securities from 12.136 billion dollars to 12.024 billion dollars. This is indicated in the materials published by the USA Treasury on Tuesday.

 China has also reduced investments in USA government bonds to a minimum since 2017.

 Investments from the Russian Federation in the USA public debt fell to a record level over the past 12 years. Experts say that the leadership of Russia is changing the tactics of distributing its reserves and selling off dollar assets, making a choice in favor of the euro, the yuan and gold.

 China remains the United States debt holder ($ 1.110 trillion). The second place on this indicator is Japan (1.001 trillion dollars).
