Economic Growth May be 1.5% in 2013, Missing Projections, Minister Says

The country may see economic growth of only 1.5 to 1.6 percent in 2013, failing to reach earlier projections of 1.8 percent, Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said in Seoul on Wednesday.

"Tomorrow we will have a meeting with the prime minister on the macroeconomic situation," he said, Interfax reported. "It is very likely that the year's results will be worse than the predicted figure."

… 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.

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.
