The Central Bank of the Russian Federation listed the main risks for the Russian economy. Thus, according to the Chairman of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina, there are a number of factors that could soon have a negative impact on the Russian economy, including a slowdown in world economic growth and a risk of increased volatility in global financial markets.
According to the experts of EDSG, the Russian economy depends on the prices of raw materials, in particular, oil. There is no guarantee that prices will continue next year at the same level as they are now. The International Energy Agency predicts a decline in oil prices due to a decrease in demand, including on the part of developed countries, as they have a tendency to reduce production growth.
Also, a number of leading Russian economists, such as Yaroslav Lissovolik, expressed their opinion on the issue to the “Profile” magazine.
