The gross nation product of the country fell by 3.7% last year. This year there will be a slight decline, we expect about 0.7-0.6%. In November we observed a small increase of the gross nation product in the country. For the year we will have a reduction of 0.5-0.6%," - said the President, answering a question about the outcome of Russia in 2016.
