“You have to understand that this was not privatization, and the creation of private property in Russia. Thousands of mistakes, hundreds of wrong decisions, including my personal, and as a result ask yourself a simple question: private property in Russia? – . And you know wasn’t there before,” said Chubais.
According to him, in 1991, almost nobody believed that in Russia it is possible to create private property. “In Russia 90-ies of the hundreds of serious experts who really understand, what problem, the question of whether to solve it, 95 out of 100 said that is impossible. Now the problem is solved, and that’s the main thing. I think it’s irreversible. I don’t see in Russian political forces, who would be willing to destroy private property, which is the basis of the Russian economy”, – said the Chairman of the Board “RUSNANO”.
Chubais also noted that the main merit of the first President of Russia is the construction of the Constitution, democracy and the market economy. “In the 90s, President Yeltsin in Russia, first, restored the Russian statehood and built it again. Secondly, in Russia was built democracy in third – market economy. Three tasks, each of which even alone seems impossible for a politician,” he commented.
