Putin: Country’s financial situation improves better than anticipated

(MENAFN) Vladimir Putin, the leader of Russia, stated on Wednesday that the nation's financial condition has improved than initially anticipated and would enable it to achieve all of its objectives.

“Our results, at least thus far, let’s say cautiously, are better than expected, better than the forecasts. This gives us hope that all the tasks as we have set them, will be fulfilled,” the leader declared throughout a conference with Russian Premier Mikhail Mishustin.

According to Mishustin, who also noted that the economy is currently on path for recovery and ongoing expansion, the administration's prudent and balanced economic strategy made it possible to fend off outside pressure.
