Since 1998, Russia has maintained consistent trade surpluses, partly as a result of the country's large exports of commodities such as crude oil and natural gas. Oil prices plummeted and European and United States sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis contributed to a major reduction in trade surpluses in 2015. The Netherlands, Turkey, Italy, and Japan had the largest trade surpluses in 2015. China, the United States, and France were the countries with the largest trade deficits.

A higher than expected figure should be seen as positive (bullish) for the RUB while a lower than expected figure should be seen as negative (bearish) for the RUB.
