The Minister of economic development of Russia Alexei Ulyukayev said on air of “First channel”, which considers a realistic scenario with oil price at 40 USD per barrel.
Ulyukayev noted that a price level of us $ 30 per barrel is too low: “I believe that it is extremely low value. We have a scenario from my point of view, much more realistic – at $ 40 per barrel. I believe that now we all focus about the figure”.
The Minister said: “we have a stressful scenario at $ 25 per barrel. We believe that we should be prepared for short-term tests of this kind, but we do not anticipate that in the course of the year on average will this price hold on”.
