    MOSCOW (Sputnik) There is a steady trend for the improvement of Russian macroeconomic indicators, including GDP, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday.

    "Last year we lived through the problems caused by the gross domestic product's shrinking. There is a decline [of GDP] for the first quarter of this year as well, but it is two times smaller than it was for the same period in the previous year. Therefore, a trend for the macroeconomic indicators' improvement, including GDP, is steady," Putin said on the meeting with French business.

    Putin also expressed confidence that Russian authorities will be able to further maintain stability of the economy.
