According to A. Epstein in the Post-Rider No43, pages 35-38, the declared value / money letter fee to France, starting November 1915 and for the 1915-1917 period, was 16k per 112R 50k or parts thereof (in addition to the regular postal fees):

The Pochtovo-Telegafnyi Kalendar-Spravochnik published in Petrograd in 1916 says the insurance fee for France was 6 kop. for each 112.5 rubles of declared value.

I got this information from the official Postal/Telegraphic Journal. The new rate to France was introduced as from November 1915. As the Kalendar-Spravochnik was published in 1916 (probably, at the beginning of year), I can suppose that its text was prepared prior to November, so it included obsolete data.
