MOSCOW, August 14 (Itar-Tass) - The rating agency Fitch has confirmed Russia’s sovereign rating at BBB with a stable outlook.
Among Russia’s advantages, Fitch experts named a low state debt of 10.4 percent of GDP in 2012 and a positive current account.
At the same time, Fitch noted that the Russian economy is slowing down and its growth will not exceed 2 percent in 2013. Structural reforms are also dragging on.
