The Ministry of Finance will not be for sanctions to revise the macroeconomic forecasts to 2018


TASS, April 20. The Finance Ministry will not revise the macroeconomic Outlook in 2018, due to the introduction of new U.S. sanctions, said in an interview with CNBC Finance Minister Anton Siluanov.

“Undoubtedly, our economic growth and budget projections were prepared, given the sanctions and given that sanctions will continue. That’s why this year we do not plan to revise any estimates due to recently imposed sanctions, although there is no doubt that they (sanctions) will have a negative impact on the companies that fall under the restrictions,” – said the Minister.
