The press secretary to the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov, commented on the further collapse in oil prices. According to him, there is no threat to the Russian economy. And the drop in oil prices is due to the closing of trading on futures in May.
“Oil prices did not turn negative yesterday, there was a collapse in oil prices for the May futures contracts. As for the whistle on the futures, this is an absolutely speculative, purely commercial moment, ”said Peskov.
Peskov noted that one should not rush to give negative forecasts to the Russian economy. According to him, the Russian government can stabilize the situation using reserve funds.
