MOSCOW, 21 Oct. The anti-recessionary program of the government of the Russian Federation is in working condition, you can see the result, but this plan ought to include new items, said the head of the faction “United Russia” in the state Duma Vladimir Vasiliev.

On Wednesday, first Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov and the head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina presented in the state Duma a report on the implementation of anti-crisis program.

“The anti-recessionary program is operational. We now say that’s not how this works, but it works, we can see the result… Many questions concerning the anti-crisis program, including, and necessary regulatory framework, and solved solved. This is very important,” Vasilyev said at a meeting of the state Duma.

The head of the faction noted that, on introducing to the state Duma anti-crisis program, the government has said that it is a living mechanism, and it may be amended.

“I think the discussion today you showed how much it missed. Were our colleagues and they are very convincingly spoke about that many more questions can and should place on it,” added Vasilyev.

He also recalled that the budget for 2016 again provides for the establishment of a crisis Fund, and noted that the previously created anti-crisis working group, staffed by two representatives of “United Russia” — the head of the Duma Committee on budget and taxes Andrey Makarov and the first Deputy speaker Alexander Zhukov. “And it would be correct if this group looked at: how to use crisis Fund, which, of course, need to control, because every penny needs to be alarmed,” said Vasiliev.
