Russia rules out recession despite economic slowdown
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Finance Minister Vladimir Kolychev said on Thursday that there was no question of the economy going into recession despite a slowdown in economic growth.
The central bank last week lowered its 2019 economic growth projection to 0.8%-1.3% from an earlier forecast of 1.0%-1.5%.
