Estonian flag carrier Nordica will begin scheduled Tallinn-St. Petersburg Bombardier CRJ900 service on May 15. The service will be 13X-weekly. “Renewal of the Tallinn flights is long-awaited for Pulkovo airport. The Estonian capital has always been a high-demand destination with St. Petersburg residents, both as a tourist and business route as well as a transit point for further travel,” Northern Capital Gateway CCO Evgeniy Ilyin said. “The flights also open up transit opportunities for flying from St. Petersburg to our other Nordica destinations via Tallinn—such as Munich, Kiev, Oslo, Stockholm, Vilnius, Brussels, Nice, Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Split, Rijeka, Trondheim and Odessa,” Nordica CCO Kristel Penu. Scheduled flights between St. Petersburg and Tallinn have not been operated since fall 2015 when Estonian Air ceased operations and filed for bankruptcy. Nordic Aviation Group was established in September 2015 to guarantee flight connections for Estonia. Later the airline was rebranded as Nordica.

Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said the ruble was overvalued by 10% to 12% at the moment. Verbal interventions by Siluanov have been beside the point because the central bank is sticking with its free float while keeping rates on pause since September. On top of verbal interventions, the Finance Ministry started a program to use windfall revenue from higher-than-forecast oil prices to purchase foreign currency. Looking ahead, growth in gross domestic production should settle between 1.5 percent and 2 percent, an improvement from previous estimates. "On the whole we agree that the economy will be growing faster than initially expected," Siluanov said, "Previously the outlook for this year was 0.6 percent." "February inflation eased to 4.6 percent from a year ago. Price growth is on track to fall to the central bank’s 4 percent target by year-end," according to Siluanov. The central bank has so far declined to join a drumbeat of concern about the currency’s strength. It’s made a resumption of foreign-currency purchases for reserves conditional on meeting its inflation target of 4 percent, according to the head of its monetary policy department, Igor Dmitriev. The central bank, which in 2015 announced a goal of boosting reserves to $500 billion in the long term.

Since the global oil prices plummeted in 2014 and western countries imposed sanctions against Russia over referendum in Crimea, the Russian economy faced serious challenges. According to the Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat), in 2014 the inflation rate surged to 11.36 percent, reaching a five-year maximum of 12.91 percent in 2015. In December last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government to adopt an action plan aimed at ensuring that by 2019-2020 the country's economy growth exceeds the global economy growth rate. "The latest Markit Business Outlook Survey indicates that Russia’s private sector companies remain strongly positive towards their year-ahead outlook for business activity in February. In fact, business confidence was at its strongest level since June 2013, as the net balance of firms forecasting growth has increased to +29%, up sharply from +18% in October last year. The study conducted from February 10 to 24 found a marked improvement in expectations associated with increased optimism in all sectors of production and services. Russian companies also expect a sharp increase in business revenue over the next 12 months, "at +34%, up from a net balance of +25% in October." Along with this, according to the study, Russian private sector companies are planning to increase job creation within the next 12 months. "Greater optimism at firms aligns with stronger readings from the PMI survey data, which hit an eight-and-a-half year high at the start of 2017 as the economy lifted itself to one of the top global economic performers," Samuel Agass, an economist at Markit, said.

Vladimir Markin, deputy general director of RusHydro said he remained optimistic about Russia's economic growth in the next few decades. "The next twenty years will see Russia's sustained economic growth, which will be based not on virtual speculative parameters, but on real figures related to electricity output, industrial and agricultural production, as well as housing and the construction of roads and bridges, among other things," he said. Independent Russian expert Ilya Popov, for his part, drew attention to the fact that foreign investors often single out Russian as one of the most promising countries when it comes to financial injections. "The Russian market remains one the few such venues that can allow an investor to obtain a very significant income when making a non-maximum investment," Popov said. He added that foreigners are still confident that Russia's economic growth will depend on the energy sector, which is why they prefer to invest in this industry. However, other sectors of the Russian economy also deserve to be mentioned, Popov said, referring to the pharmaceuticals, biotech, information technology and telecommunications sectors. "Drawing investors to these industries and their development will help ensure Russia's long-term economic growth," Popov pointed out. Last month, the Austrian newspaper Wiener Zeitung wrote that the anti-Russian sanctions introduced by the West have proved to be ineffective, with the Russian economy showing clear signs of recovery. Russia reacted to the sanctions by strengthening its domestic production, especially with respect to metallurgy and agriculture, the article said. The newspaper cited German economic expert Dietmar Fellner as saying that Russia's economic recovery, which is happening in spite of ongoing Western sanctions, "boosts the country's self-confidence."

The world's largest energy producer is out of its longest recession in two decades by Anna Andrianova: Russia has exited recession, with a little help from the boys in uniform, a major statistical revision – and the global oil price. And not just any recession, but its longest in two decades. So what happened? 1. Is the economy really out of the woods? Actually, the contraction ended a few quarters earlier than previously estimated, according to revised calculations by the Bank of Russia’s research and forecasting department. The Federal Statistics Office hasn't released a quarterly growth figure since 2015, so that's not an official, official number. The central bank had thought that quarterly growth turned positive only in the second half of last year. Now it seems Russia has been in the black since the first quarter of 2016. “The first monthly data of this year showed more signs that Russia is expected to enjoy a broad macro recovery in 2017,” Dmitry Polevoy, economist for Russia at ING Groep NV in Moscow, said in a report. “A significant improvement of activity in January probably related to the stronger ruble, lower inflation and improving domestic demand.” 2. So the recovery is not just down to the oil price? Well, it is a bit. Oil prices are rising following the OPEC agreement on output cuts last year. Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as the word’s largest crude producer in December as both nations started adhering to the agreed cuts. Russia’s Urals export blend averaged $53.32 in the first two months of the year, while the government plans on the basis of oil at $40 this year. Oil and gas contributed 40 percent of Russia's budget revenue in 2016. But, other sectors are growing too. “In 2016, growth in non-energy sectors was a nice surprise,” Vladimir Miklashevsky, senior strategist at Danske Bank A/S in Helsinki, said. “For changes in the structure of the economy, growth in non-energy sectors is more important for better long-term prospects than the increase in oil prices and production.” 3. Aren't sanctions hurting? Russian officials have been saying, in unison, that the country has become used to sanctions and can carry on just fine. In response to Russia's annexation of Crimea and support for separatists in eastern Ukraine, the U.S. and the European Union imposed curbs including limiting access to western capital and technologies. The economy would undoubtedly get a lift if the Trump administration – currently embattled because of alleged links to Russia – decides to ease the restrictions the government has already imposed. According to the majority of economists surveyed by Bloomberg, the ruble would gain 5 percent to 10 percent in value in such a case. GDP would also get a boost, to the tune of 0.2 percentage point this year and 0.5 percentage point next year, the survey showed. The International Monetary Fund has calculated that the international restrictions might have initially reduced real GDP by 1 percent to 1.5 percent, while prolonged curbs may result in a cumulative loss of as much as 9 percent of economic output in the medium term, according a staff report in 2015. 4. What about ordinary Russians, how are they doing? Consumer demand was the main growth driver in Russia for decades and it bore the brunt of the recession as inflation, propelled by the ruble’s fall, choked it. Inflation is easing though, thanks to tighter policy from the central bank with its inflation goal in mind. While retail sales are yet to catch up and move into positive territory, they have curbed their decline, the Federal Statistics Service said Feb 22. The Bank of Russia is targeting 4 percent inflation by the end of 2017, while economists in a Bloomberg survey see consumer-price growth easing to 4.3 percent by then. (Personal note - February inflation was 4.6% the lowest in 5 years, down from 5% in January) William Jackson, senior emerging market economist at Capital Economics, wrote. "Inflation is likely to be lower than most expect, the interest easing cycle will ultimately be much larger than the markets are currently pricing in." 5. How do the growth forecasts compare with the past? Well, they're not spectacular. Part of the reason is that, according to central bank governor Elvira Nabiullina, the country needs reform to unlock further possibilities. Without that, growth potential will likely be capped at 1.5-2 percent. That mightn't be enough to satisfy Putin. He's told Economy Minister Maxim Oreshkin to prepare a plan to accelerate growth to match that of the global economy by 2019 – – a prospect that would mean they'll have to find at least another percentage point from somewhere. (Personal note - Russian GDP averaged 7% from 2000 to 2008)

Russian inflation just plunged to its lowest rate in nearly five years. Consumer prices rose by 4.6% year-over-year in February, shy of the 4.7% increase that economists were expecting and below the prior month's print of 5.0%. This was the lowest rate since June 2012. Prices rose by just 0.2% in month-over-month terms, compared to expectations of a 0.3% uptick. Back at its February meeting, the Central Bank of Russia held rates at 10.00% and noted that it saw less room for rate cuts going forward amid rising inflation risks. However, Tuesday's "data make the next central bank interest rate meeting on 24th March an extremely close call. Moves in market-based inflation expectations and the three weekly CPI released due between now and then will determine whether the Board lowers interest rates or stands pat," William Jackson, senior emerging market economist at Capital Economics, wrote. "We will firm up our forecast closer to the time although, as things stand, we think it’s more likely than not that the Board will opt to lower interest rates," he added. "Either way, with inflation likely to be lower than most expect, the easing cycle will ultimately be much larger than the markets are currently pricing in."

Russia’s Gazprom (JRS 2nd Largest Investment) increased its share of the European gas market to a record 34 percent last year. This means Russia will remain the biggest supplier of gas to Europe through 2035, according to Royal Dutch Shell and BP. "Last year we delivered 179.3 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe. This is 12.5 percent more than in 2015. Our market share of the European market has increased to 34 percent," said Gazprom Deputy Chairman Aleksandr Medvedev. "Europe has always been and continues to be a priority market for Gazprom," Medvedev added. Last week, Royal Dutch Shell confirmed Russia will continue to be top European gas supplier at least through 2035, echoing comments by BP in January. While LNG supplies led by Qatar were stagnant last year, a surge in US shale crude production did not materialize due to a lack of firm contracts and higher prices. “Russia will certainly remain Europe’s largest gas supplier for at least two more decades,” said Vladimir Drebentsov, chief economist for Russia and CIS at BP in Moscow. Gazprom will not lose its position even if increasing demand in Europe is filled with LNG supplies, he added. According to Gazprom’s Medvedev, this year the company plans to sell gas at $180 to $190 per thousand of cubic meters, up from last year’s $167. The rise in prices is linked to surging oil prices, explains Aleksey Grivach, deputy CEO at Russia's National Energy Security Fund. “Gas prices are tied to oil prices. But not on day to day basis, but in accordance with an average crude price for the previous six to nine months. This makes gas prices more predictable and less volatile,” he said.

One area I take great interest in are the international flights into Moscow and St Petersburg by the major European airlines. From 2012 through to early 2016 they were reducing their flights which indicated to me that the Russian economy was in trouble. Over the past 6 months Finnair has doubled its flights from both Moscow and St Petersburg to Helsinki while KLM have just announced that it has increased its frequency form St Petersburg to Amsterdam from daily (7 flights per week) to twice daily (14 flights per week) which can only be good news as it shows to me that business men are now returning to Russia and therefore the Russian economy is returning to good health.

More things to see in St Petersburg..... Pulkovo Observatory: One hour from the city is the almost-futuristic world of the semi-abandoned scientific observatory at Pulkovo Hills. From time to time steel refractors and radio telescopes burst into view, disrupting the serene landscape and inspiring a sense of awe. On the grounds are several Stalin-era residential houses decorated with Zodiac signs, and Zhiguli cars dotted around – the area seemingly stuck in the past. A shimmering light pink underpass leads to the observatory when leaving the bus at Pulkovo Highway. It’s the perfect place for watching the planes taking off at Pulkovo airport while enjoying the strange, eerie allure of the abandoned observatory. Udelka: the flea market with everything: Everybody in St Petersburg owns something from Udelka, the city’s main flea market and one of the most authentic in the country. Part of the site is now taken up by indoor shops selling Turkish wares, but further down the railway tracks the old-fashioned Udelka lives on, with its precious trinkets from Leningrad living rooms, some of the greatest outfits and accessories from the days of the USSR, leftfield costumes and ridiculous T-shirts from the 90s, ragdolls dangling from strings, vintage leather suitcases and wing mirrors for Zhigulis – classic Soviet-era cars. • 39 Fermskoye Highway, Udelnaya station

mrs tubs - That is Bills high end estimate. Putin has access to upto 58 planes, however he doesn´t own most of them. From the Russian´s I know they say they reckon Putin is worth between $2bln and $7bln. Most people on the Forbes rich list are worth far more than Forbes say as Forbes only takes what is offically publically out there, while many if not all these people have plenty of their wealth unoffically stashed away and hidden from public view.

The first 20 tons or there abouts of the Central banks gold buying is buying from domestic producers as local domsstic gold production is sold to the governement and not on the open market while much of the rest will have been bought via the Shanghai metal/gold exchange and purchased in Chinese Yuan. Russia sells much of it´s gas to China in Yuan, then uses this Yuan to buy gold. China also doesn´t sell its domestically produced gold, most of the gold sold on the Shanghai exchange comes from the West, especially via Switzerland and from countries such as Australia.

Moody’s Investors Service has changed the outlook on Russia’s Ba1 government bond rating to stable from negative, affirming the rating and citing economic recovery. "The main driver for changing the outlook on Russia's Ba1 government bond rating to stable from negative is the government's enactment of a medium-term fiscal consolidation strategy that is expected both to lower the government's dependence on oil and gas revenues and to permit the gradual replenishment of its savings buffers. In addition, the Russian economy is now recovering after a nearly two-year-long recession," Moody’s said on Friday.

Traders in the United States are betting the Russian ruble rally will continue, according to US Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Over the last 12 months, the ruble has strengthened over 25 percent against the dollar, the best performance among global currencies. On Monday, the Russian currency was trading near 20-month highs below 58 rubles against the dollar and 61.7 against the euro. The rally is continuing despite the Central Bank of Russia buying dollars in February to replenish reserves. "The ruble would have strengthened sharply without these operations, but it can become a threat to economic stability," said Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov. The Russian budget heavily relies on oil revenues and needs a balance between oil prices and the exchange rate of the ruble. A strong ruble not backed by relative crude prices would make a hole in the Russian budget. According to Andrey Kostin, the head of Russia's second-biggest bank VTB, the ruble has a potential to increase by a further 10 percent in value this year to 52-53 against the dollar, if the Central Bank doesn’t limit the surge. The ruble may strengthen to 50 against the dollar if there is good geopolitical environment, said Vasily Yakimkin, an economist at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration.

Talks Between Lavrov, Tillerson Hint at US-Russia 'Thaw': On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held a meeting in Bonn, Germany. Unofficial sources said that both the Russian and American sides put high hopes on the meeting in Bonn because it was expected to shed some light on the intentions of the new US presidential administration. Sources also suggested that during the talks the Russian and US top diplomats may arrange the conditions for a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US leader Donald Trump. According to Dmitry Suslov, deputy director of the Council for Foreign and Defense Policy think-tank the meeting was also important because Moscow and Washington had a chance to outline the entire bilateral agenda. "The sides needed to make clear the fields for cooperation and articulate differences and tensions. This was the goal. No one should expect any breakthrough results from such a meeting," the expert pointed out. Suslov suggested that the main point the two ministers might have discussed is resumption of practical US-Russia ties. "De facto such a thaw has already begun. The first sign is a meeting between Russian and US military chiefs [on February 16, in Baku, Azerbaijan]. But it should be continued. If Lavrov and Tillerson discussed this issue then it would mean their talks were positive," he said. The expert added that currently there are several areas in which Moscow and Washington could work together, including the fight against terrorism, the settlement of the Syrian conflict and the implementation of the Minsk agreements. As for the Minsk agreement, according to Suslov, the Trump administration is unlikely to make any concessions to Russia in the near future because the White House is "under constant pressure over its alleged ties to Russia."

The business confidence in Russia has reached the highest level since 2011, the economic development minister said. The Russian Economic Development Ministry expects the country's economy to grow some two percent this year as the recovery begins to affect the broader population, ministry head Maxim Oreshkin said Wednesday. "In the start of 2017 the situation is also quote positive… In 2017 we expect growth to be broader, expanding into the consumer sector. We expect incomes to recover, there will be a positive tendency. We expect growth of some two percent in 2017," Oreshkin said. So far, rail freight and the electricity sectors are showing the best growth figures, the minister added, noting that business confidence had reached the highest levels in over five years. "Rail freight increased around nine percent year-on-year, this is a very high increase, it indicates that economic activity is recovering. Looking at business surveys, the figures are showing that the level of confidence is at its highest since 2011," Oreshkin said, adding that the recovery has so far only impacted a limited number of sectors, including agriculture and chemicals. Russia is emerging from a two-year recession that began amid collapsing commodity prices, including oil, as well as the Western sanctions. In 2016, Russia's economy is estimated to have contracted by 0.5 percent after contracting almost four percent the previous year. The first three quarters saw negative growth rates before a slight GDP increase in the fourth quarter. The Economic Development Ministry's 2017 baseline scenario forecast is a GDP increase of 0.6 percent.
