Nothing concrete about new measures to support businesses and people in President Vladimir Putin has not sounded. Such opinion to the correspondent of “Rosbalt” was expressed by Andrew Zaostrovtsev, researcher, Center for modernization studies at the European University in St. Petersburg.
“When I listened to the first part of the President’s speech, there was a feeling that younger forty years. It resembled the speech of Leonid Iliaca the Congress in the spirit of “our farm has fulfilled the plan”. About the measures nothing specific was said, only a few abstract phrases. We will wait for the proposals of the government, but it is unlikely that there will be something radically new. And the old measure is not always implemented. Those 12 thousand rubles, about which the President spoke last time and that was to get people engaged in small businesses, many have not reached”, — said the economist.
The extension of the non-working period up to may 11 inclusive, the economist called destructive especially for small businesses.
“During the holidays, many organizations earn more than usual. They, of course, will be difficult to survive these days, the economist noted. But it is clear here that the situation is ambiguous here, as the saying goes — nose pull out, the tail will stick. If you continue to tighten the regime of self-isolation, will suffer the business and the economy as a whole, if to soften the restrictive measures, an additional burden will fall on the health care system, which is not all cope”.
We will remind, on April 28, President Vladimir Putin announced the extension of the regime “holidays” to 11 may inclusive, and offered to the government by may 5 to prepare a new package of measures to support business and population.
