MOSCOW--Russia saw a net $43.4 billion in capital outflow in the first six months of the year, the central bank said Wednesday.

Capital outflow for the first quarter amounted to $33.9 billion, adjusted downwards from an earlier figure of $35.1 billion. Outflows shrank in the second quarter to $9.5 billion, the data showed.

Last month, the central bank said that outflows for January to June stood at $46.5 billion.

The central bank says capital flight is a twofold problem: Russian investors are boosting foreign assets and foreign investors are fleeing emerging markets amid debt worries in the euro area, one of Russia's main trading partners.
