The Russian Finance Ministry has executed a regular payment for Russia's debt to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The Ministry has paid EUR45.139m, the press service of the Ministry reported to RBC today. According to the schedule, the payment was to be executed on November 7, which is a day-off in Russia. This is why the payment has been executed ahead of schedule on November 4, the Finance Ministry stressed. This is the second in the three payments to this international organization in November.
