Despite the impact of the crisis caused by the pandemic, not all CIS markets recorded a drop in total GWP volume - the growth rate of the Azerbaijani insurance sector in euros was quite significant (+12.20%), Kazakhstan and Georgia also remained in the positive area according to the 1H2020 results. At the same time, the main market of the region - Russia reduced GWP in euros, which, first of all, is associated with a big depreciation of the local currency against euro, given that the share of this market in the regional portfolio remained practically unchanged.
