SOCHI. Sept 18 (Interfax) - There are problems with the volume of investment in the Russian economy, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said.

"The Russian economy is totally under-invested," Putin told an international investment forum in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi on Friday.

The infrastructure and technological base of a large number of industrial sectors need to be updated, the prime minister said.
