According to him, the Russian economy will work fine.
“I mean, after the crisis or peak of the crisis, it will recover, in this sense the most difficult thing is to survive this peak,” Kudrina quotes TASS.
According to him, at present, a number of industries have lost 90-100% of consumers, the demand for their products or services.
Kudrin said that the IMF predicts a decline in Russia in the amount of more than 5% of GDP. At the same time, he emphasized that Russia is "very strongly connected with the world."
“Therefore, the [decline] from 7% to 8% - [this] today is probably a clearer orientation, clearer numbers that you can focus on,” Kudrin added.
In March, Kudrin announced an unprecedented crisis due to coronavirus.
