Russia got over $50 billion foreign investments in 2012 - Medvedev

The level of foreign investments in Russia in 2012 was by no means the worst, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

"In general, foreign investments in the Russian economy amounted to over $50 billion, which is almost in line with 2011." Medvedev said at a meeting of the governmental committee on foreign investments on Friday.

The Russian prime minister said that this level was "not the worst by far" amid the global dynamics.

"We are among top five-six world leaders getting foreign investments, while direct foreign investments decreased almost 20 percent in the world," Medvedev said.
