RUSSIA SELLS THE STATE ENTERPRISES
Recently Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a decree on selling largest enterprises to foreigners. Such measure is aimed at countering economic collapse in the country.
According to Minister of Economic Development of Russia Alexei Ulyukayev, the worst predictions come true. There are rumors of the sale of large oil companies. First of all "Rosneft", "Alrosa" and "Bashneft."
The economic experts ensures that isn't the best decision to sell the assets of stable and promising state enterprises even in troubled times. According to them, probably some people from Putin's entourage are trying to fill their pockets in this way. The point is that the European investors will not participate in the auction due to sanctions.
Meanwhile, the Crimea occupation government headed by former local criminal authority Aksyonov continue to sell all "ownerless assets," that were previously owned by Ukraine.
