While India is contributing 6.5% of global growth during this time period, Russia has struggled since oil prices collapsed, and is negatively impacting global growth by contracting -1.3% through 2016. The remaining BRIC, Brazil, has flatlined and is contributing 0.0% to world economic growth in the same timeframe.
