This is reported by Bloomberg with reference to the "closed report for the Government of the Russian Federation". The document referred to by the publication was allegedly prepared for a closed meeting of senior officials of the Government of the Russian Federation on August 30, and its authenticity was allegedly confirmed by "people familiar with the discussions."
According to this document, official forecasts about the Russian economy are significantly more optimistic than those given in unofficial data, which are the result of months of work by government officials and experts who tried to assess the true impact of Western sanctions on the Russian economy.
In all scenarios, the pressure of sanctions will only increase, and new countries may join them. Europe's abrupt rejection of Russian oil and gas may also hit the Kremlin's ability to supply products to its own market, the report says.
Out of respect for the authoritative media, of course, it is not necessary to catch him on internal contradictions, including his own news, but it is worth noting that Western countries have been talking about the exhaustion of sanctions opportunities for several months. However, many threats have not reached their realization, perhaps due to the continued sanity of some Western politicians.
So, at the end of August this year, the American and European media once again stated that the introduction of additional sanctions, in addition to those already adopted, would only have the opposite effect and harm the European economy.
Thus, in the light of the above, the information provided by Bloomberg does not inspire confidence, but in any case, it is too early to draw such conclusions without confirmation from Russian sources.Ôîòî: îôèöèàëüíûé ñàéò Ïðàâèòåëüñòâà Ðîññèè
