ECONOMIC ANNALYSIS OF RUSSIAN FEDERATION A decade after the collapse of the U.S.S.R., Russian Federation, while still struggling to establish a modern market economy and achieve sustainable economic growth, has just completed its third year of strong economic growth.

In 2000, with oil prices hitting their peaks for this cycle, investment spending and export earnings strengthened further, powering the economy's growth at a torrid 8.3 percent annual rate.The government budget came in approximately in balance and Russia repaid an estimate US$17 billion in international debt, reducing the external debt to about US$135 billion by year-end 2001. While the Russian economy, with establishment of political stability under President Vladimir Putin and the unexpected aid of high oil prices, has made some big advances in the past three years, many problems remain on the path to sustained, diversified growth. At present, the economy is far too dependent on energy and energy...
