Evaluation of DFID’s country programmes: Russia 2001 to 2005 - summary (ev677)

The Russian Federation is a large, middle income country. The country’s turbulent transition during the 1990s led to a high proportion of people in poverty. Rapid economic recovery since 1999 has reduced this substantially, although deep pockets of poverty remain a serious problem.
