MOSCOW (Reuters) - There is a need to support macroeconomic stability in Russia and stick to inflation goals in order to ensure economic growth, President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.
Speaking at an economic forum, Putin also said that a budget deficit of 3 percent of gross domestic product this year would be acceptable.
Western economic sanctions imposed on Moscow affect Russia's economy, but they also hurt the global economy in general, he said.
