Industrial Production Faster

Russian industrial-production growth accelerated last month, the State Statistics Service said Friday.

Output rose 6.5 percent in February compared with a year earlier, the fastest since January 2011 and up from a 3.8 percent reading the previous month.

Gains in manufacturing and utilities output propelled production, helping the economy weather disruptions in financial markets caused by the crisis in Europe. Prices of goods leaving factories and mines grew 7 percent in February from a year earlier and rose 1.1 percent in the month, the service 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.
