At least 356,000 ounces of gold were bought by the Central Bank of Russia last month, making it the largest buyer of the precious metal among the world’s central banks, an IMF report said.

China took second place; its Central Bank purchased about 320,000 ounces of gold in February, according to Chinese Central Bank officials.

Meanwhile, it was reported last week that between March 11 and March 18, the value of Russia’s gold reserves rose by $5.8 billion, from $381.1 billion to $386.9 billion.
