According to RIA Novosti, this is stated in the report of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

As politicians and business leaders travel to Davos, the global economy is facing what may be its biggest test since World War II.

The IMF said that the reasons for this were a number of factors, in particular, the coronavirus pandemic, the conflict over Ukraine and the continuing threat of climate change.

Earlier, the head of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development, Maxim Reshetnikov, said that anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the West would destabilize the situation in the entire global economy.
