The total size of the Russian government’s bailout package thus far is $260bn, or 15% GDP; of this, $160bn has already been spent. The size of the plan as a percentage of GDP exceeds that of the US (11% of GDP) or Germany (6.5% of GDP). Meanwhile, Russia’s bailout plan does not increase the size of public debt, and is financed from government funds.
