MOSCOW, 20 APR –. The head of Sberbank German Gref, who called Russia a country downshifters may be objective, but his statement was very emotional, said Secretary of the Public chamber Alexander Brechalov.
Earlier at the Gaidar forum, Gref said that Russia lost the social and technological competition and has become downshifters.
“It’s his emotion. I’m not so deep in this area… he Probably objective. And the fact that he allowed himself such emotion… worse, when Siluanov speaks of the crisis of 98-th year”,- said Brechalov.
Earlier Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said that the budget should be brought into line with the new realities, or maybe a repeat of the crisis of 1998-1999. The economic crisis of 1998 became one of the biggest in modern Russian history — for example, inflation that year reached 84.5 percent.
