Foreign Aid

(Question No. 671)

Ms Rowland asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, in writing, on 1 December 2014:

(1) Is the Australian Government currently providing Foreign Aid to the Russian Federation; if so, what sum.

(2) Has the Australian Government provided Foreign Aid to the Russian Federation over the previous 12 months; if so, what sum.

Ms Julie Bishop: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Australia does not currently provide Official Development Assistance (ODA) to the Russian Federation and has not in the previous 12 months. The Russian Federation is not on the OECD Development Assistance Committee's List of ODA Recipients and is therefore not eligible to receive ODA.
