The Russian Federation began reporting its ODA to the OECD for the first time in 2011 (on 2010 flows), becoming the first “BRICS” (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) country to do so. In 2010, the Russian Federation’s total net ODA disbursements were USD 472.4 million, down from USD 785 million in 2009, as reported by the Russian Ministry of Finance. Two-thirds of the Russian Federation’s ODA is delivered bilaterally, with the remainder as core contributions to various UN agencies, the Global Fund and the World Bank. Russian bilateral and multilateral ODA is based on the regulations and conditions of the concept note Russia’s Participation in International Development Assistance approved by the President of the Russian Federation in June 2007.7 Health is a priority sector for the Russian Federation – especially infectious disease control – however, the Russian Federation also invests in food security, education and humanitarian assistance. The Russian Federation’s main partner countries are the members of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), followed by countries in the Asia-Pacific region and Sub-Saharan Africa.
