Most foreign direct investment into Russia originates in the European Union: European investors own between 55 percent and 75 percent of Russian FDI stock. This points to a Russian dependence on European investment, making the EU paramount for Russian medium-term growth.

Most phantom FDI into Russia is believed to originate from Russia itself and thus is by construction not foreign.

The trend increase in the frequency of European related articles, previously found looking at the French and German press, is confirmed in the case of Italy.
