    MOSCOW, August 18 (RIA Novosti) -- Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin has predicted a 6% growth in the economy this year. "For the moment, I think a 6% economic growth is what we will achieve in 2006," Kudrin said after a government session Thursday.

    He added that Russia has not exceeded the 1990 GDP level, but has experienced record economic growth rates since 1970.

    Kudrin also said the country would achieve the Soviet GDP level in 2007.
