Population in Russia
Russia - PopulationIncoming data suggests that economic momentum held up in the second quarter, after GDP growth accelerated at the start of the year. Higher oil prices are buttressing the all-important energy sector, and export growth was firm in April and May. In addition, the unemployment rate remained at a multi-year low in June and retail sales growth picked up in the same month, buoyed by World Cup-related spending. On the political front, President Vladimir Putin stated on 20 July that a planned increase in the retirement age would be reviewed. The legislation had provoked widespread protests earlier in the month, although analysts argue it is necessary to combat the effects of an ageing workforce and improve the sustainability of the pension system.
