|Abstract:||The main purpose of this thesis work is to analyze the role of FDI in Russian economy
and to find out the degree of impact on the economic growth. The empirical research captures
2000-2013 years specifying by quarterly time-series, which investigates the topic based on
two hypotheses. These hypotheses mainly revolve over the role of FDI in the economy as a
whole and by major economic sectors (financial sector, heavy industry sector and trade
sector). The evidence outcomes of the investigation makes it clear that FDI does not always
induce the economic growth by sectors, since due to the spillover effect, there is not a
warranty that each sector gets equivalent positive impact from the inflow of FDI.
