In August 2019, for the first time since February, Russia increased its investments in US government securities to $9.3 bln.

Japan remained the largest holder of US government securities in November last year for the sixth month in a row with a figure of $1.16 trillion. The second place with $1.09 trillion is occupied by China, which has been the leader for a long time.
