“Russia is the largest European market in terms of retail turnover, but until recently, demand exceeded supply. The intensification of the development of shopping centers since 2010 has led to a large volume of new construction, which is now being commissioned, ”said Maxim Karbasnikoff, head of the retail real estate department at Cushman & Wakefield Russia.
