Punishment regarding Russia in General have the ability to survive for a period of about three years, only in some local areas of the sanctions policy can bring positive consequences, but for most areas of the investment climate and this is a problem currently, However there are certain reserves for the mitigation of punishment, the Head of Department of civil initiatives (CGI), former Minister of Finance Alexey Kudrin.
Chapter CHY said that he sees positive steps in the settlement of the Ukrainian fall: the military component is reduced, searching for solutions to the questions on the status and living conditions of residents.
"These aspects have become more present in all negotiating processes, which corresponds to the Minsk agreements. Of course, Today it is difficult to talk about their full execution, or on completion of their execution ", - Kudrin said reporters on Tuesday after meeting the OIG.
However, the abolition of punishment or reduced punishment speech until is not, says ex-Finance Minister.
"As long as we are in a difficult situation, until it is not, apparently, on the reduction of punishment, they will be extended, but not for a year, I think that given the scale of the processes that are required to complete, in 3 years they will continue," - said Kudrin.
"I should have seen the task of a partial mitigation of the punishment, that is, movement toward a compromise that would change the motion vector is not increasing the penalties, and to reduce them ", - he added.
Even a small reduction in terms of the sanctions policy would have significantly changed the mood in the business environment, investment environment, said the Head of the OIG.
"I think Today created some backlogs, so that We can move to commutation. For this we must fight, we must stop to say that punishment will support us. Today, the punishment really has deprived the Russian Federation of investment rating investment rating of the borrowing sovereign borrowings that, by itself, creates great difficulties for the modernization policy in Russia ", - he said.
Ex-Finance Minister added that only in some local areas of punishment have the opportunity to bring improvement and broadening of the Russian capabilities.
"in most areas and in General in the investment climate rather, it causes deterioration and a sharp reduction of opportunities of Russia. I only gave an overall assessment of the sanctions as a positive phenomenon, " he noted.
