Russia - Current Account (billions of U.S. Dollars)

Growth slowed significantly in Q1, on weaker domestic demand due to the fallout from the war in Ukraine. Turning to Q2, the economy is heading into a deep recession as Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine’s Donbas region drags on and sanctions bite. Economic activity contracted in April, seemingly driven by a plunge in private spending as retail sales tumbled. Similarly, investment activity should be feeling the impact of sanctions and capital outflows. Meanwhile, although soaring energy prices have helped the external sector hold up relatively well so far, the EU’s decision in late May to largely ban Russian oil imports by end-2022 will hit the sector hard in the coming months. Meanwhile, to prop up the ailing economy, the government announced double digit hikes to pensions and the minimum wage, and slashed interest rate again in May. However, this will be insufficient to prevent a recession.
