The contraction will be less in Russia and it will amount to 4.1%, while turkey’s economy will be 5% down this year.
However, contraction of 4.5% is predicted in Georgia’s neighboring Armenia and 4% in Azerbaijan. It should be noted, that rebound of 3.5% and 2% is forecasted in those two countries next year.
