The economic crisis in Greece in practice will not have an impact on the Russian economy, said the Head of VTB Bank Andrey Kostin.
Greece does not have enough resources to Finance its external and internal obligations And EU partners call for new reforms in exchange for loans. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was scheduled on 5 July, a referendum on the proposals of the European creditors and tried to convince voters from these proposals to be abandoned.
"I do not see any adverse effects from the events in Greece - ed.) for the Russian economy, the Russian Federation, although any, of course, a shock in the EU, it does not lead to the best," said Kostin in the program " ".
review the head of VTB, the accession of Greece to the EU was politically motivated, And financial and economic indicators of the country did not meet the necessary for integration into the economic space of the EU.
"When Greece was taken, largely, in my opinion, it was politically motivated, and Greece is clearly weaker Economic potential and, in General, not quite matching the Maastricht criteria, which have been determined for the occurrence of some other countries in the Eurozone, was adopted the single currency system," said Kostin.
The head of the second largest Russian Bank believes that since then, the EU has lost the third letter in their own name and it was not the European Economic Union And the European Union ", in many ways the actions of its leadership or leading States of Europe was motivated by a political agenda.
"So it was with Greece, even more So as it was with the accession countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic States in the EU. Today we are witnessing the continuation of this policy, it is an attempt to pull back the Ukraine. If Greece does not fit the standards of the EU, then, of course, Ukraine is seriously still lags behind the standards. While we observe further the EU is interested in (such countries - ed.), Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, I'm not talking about Moldova, " he concluded.
