Government anti-crisis plan

Earlier, at the end of January, the Russian government presented an anti-crisis plan - 60 measures at the estimated cost of 2.332 tln. rubles.

The document provides for seven key areas to implement the anti-crisis measures.

Among them are supporting import substitution and non-resource export, including high-tech products, promoting the development of small and medium-sized businesses, creating opportunities for fund raising in major economic sectors, including the implementation of state defense order, repaying inflation costs to the most vulnerable social groups, reducing pressure on the labor market, optimizing budget expenditure and providing sustainability of the banking system.
