The Russian Federation’s development co-operation is provided in line with the Concept of Russia’s Participation in International Development Assistance, approved by the President of the Russian Federation in 2007. The concept sets out the objectives, principles and priorities of the Russian Federation’s development co-operation, as well as the criteria for providing assistance to partner countries. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Finance are jointly responsible for formulating the Russian Federation’s development co-operation policy and for supervising its implementation.
The Russian Federation provides its bilateral development co-operation mostly to the members of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The priority sectors of the Russian Federation’s bilateral development co‑operation are energy, health and education. The Russian Federation provides its bilateral development co-operation in the form of debt relief, concessional loans, technical co-operation projects and scholarships, as well as budget support.
The Russian Federation provided its multilateral ODA through the World Bank Group (accounting for 51% of its multilateral ODA in 2012) as well as through the United Nations and regional development banks.
In 2007, the OECD decided to open accession discussions with the Russian Federation. In 2013, the Russian Federation participated in the DAC Senior‑Level Meeting, a meeting of the DAC Working Party on Development Finance Statistics and a seminar at the OECD on DAC statistical reporting.
