The Russian financial crisis occurred on August 17, 1998, exacerbated by the global recession caused by the Asian financial crisis in 1997. Russia was highly dependent on exports of raw materials, with petroleum, natural gas, metals and timber accounting for more than 80% of its exports. With the drop in global demand, prices of those commodities began to decline. This resulted in an impact on its foreign exchange reserves since Russia had a fixed exchange rate regime during this period of time, where the ruble was only allowed to move within a narrow band. With the speculative attacks caused by the Asian financial crisis along with the decline in global demand, the Central Bank
