Greenfield investment monitor fDi Markets shows that between January 2012 and December 2014, Russia’s share of central and eastern European (CEE) FDI declined. A total of 274 FDI projects, excluding retail, were recorded in Russia in 2012, accounting for 19.28% of the CEE market. In 2013, this share declined, with Russia's 239 projects accounting for 17.45% of the market. And, in 2014, this figure fell again to 12.93%.
