Russia’s Central Bank said in mid-June it expected the Russian economy to slow down to 0.4% in 2014.
The regulator also earlier reported that economic growth was expected to accelerate slightly in the second half of 2014 amid a decrease in geopolitical tension and an improvement in producer sentiment.
