X5 Revenue Up in Q2

X5 Retail Group, Russia's largest supermarket chain by revenue, reported sales growth of 41 percent in the second quarter on consumer demand and after acquiring the Kopeika food store chain.

Net retail sales climbed to 112 billion rubles ($4 billion) from 79.8 billion rubles a year earlier, X5 said Friday in a statement.

Growth rates slowed in the second quarter from the first three months of the year as real incomes declined, which is expected to continue in the third quarter, chief executive Andrei Gusev said in the statement. Demand will probably rebound in the last three months, he said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
