Unemployment in Russia

Russia - Unemployment

Comprehensive GDP data revealed a stronger expansion in the third quarter of 2018 than previously estimated, revising growth up to 1.5% annually. Despite the upward revision, the recovery still lost steam overall in the third quarter, as deteriorating consumption dynamics and a poor performance by the agricultural sector weighed on activity. Available data for the fourth quarter suggests that growth likely gained steam. Rising oil production likely buttressed activity, despite the fact that the price of Ural oil sunk to the lowest level since June 2017 in December. In the political arena, OPEC, Russia and other allies agreed to further limit oil production on 7 December, in an attempt to boost failing oil prices. On a bright note, in the same month, the U.S. Treasury announced plans to lift sanctions on several Russian companies linked to Oleg Deripaska, including aluminum giant Rusal, after Deripaska ceded control.
