The conflict over Ukraine and the subsequent imposition of – so far limited – EU and US sanctions are already showing first effects: a deteriorating investment climate, accelerating capital outflows, declining investments and further growth slowdown. Compared to earlier forecasts, growth prospects for the coming years have been scaled down. For 2014 we expect a growth rate of 0.6%, for 2015 1.6% and for 2016 2.3%.
