Abstract: Russia was the largest state of the USSR. Under the Presidency of Gorbachev in 1990-1991, the soviet government introduced privatisation reforms. Following the reforms, the retail prices in the USSR increased and the real gross domestic product reduced. After breaking away from the USSR in 1991, Russia started transforming into a market-oriented economy. In order to stabilise its economy, the Russian Central Bank increased the interest rates and issued government bonds called GKOs. By 1997, inflation had been brought down and the rouble, the Russian currency, had stabilised. But following the Asian crisis, the foreign investors in Russia lost their confidence in both the currency and bond markets. Forced by the mounting pressure, the Russian government allowed the rouble to float and stopped the payment on GKOs to the value of $40 billion.
