The Russian economy continues to grow at a slow pace. The unimpressive performance is forecast to last even in the medium term since no improvements in either domestic or external conditions for development are expected. High oil prices currently mitigate the adverse impacts of geopolitical tensions, though both investments and economic restructuring suffer. Chinese-Russian relations are likely to strengthen further.
