MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s economy is expected to expand by 2.6% in 2024-2025 thanks to domestic consumer and investment demand, Economy Minister Maxim Reshetnikov said on Wednesday, after falling this year and next due to Western sanctions.

Russian gross domestic product (GDP) is seen falling by 2.9% this year and by 0.8% in 2023, Reshetnikov told the upper house of parliament, with the jobless rate seen at 4.5% and inflation at 12.4% by end-2022.

Russian officials have been improving forecasts as Western sanctions caused a spike in price for Russian oil, gas and commodity exports despite shortages and talk of a need to restrict the country’s usage.

In April, the World Bank had forecast a GDP contraction as deep as 11.2% this year but Reshetnikov said emergency support measures taken by the government coupled with high energy prices have helped stabilize the situation.

According to the forecast, the price for Russian Urals oil is seen at $70 per barrel next year and $65 in 2025, with discounts narrowing as Russia re-routes export flows to what Reshetnikov called “neutral countries” – the ones which did not join sanctions on Moscow after it sends troops into Ukraine.

Below is a table with the latest economy ministry’s forecasts:
