MOSCOW, October 10 (Itar-Tass) — Russia does not rule out that it may provide support to Europe to overcome the euro crisis, the Kremlin’s top economic advisor, Arkady Dvorkovich, told reporters on Monday.
“We are waiting for the European countries to announce a concrete clear-cut strategy for going out of the crisis. If within the framework of this strategy the support of Russia or BRICS states (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) is required, we are ready to provide it,” he said.
“Until such strategy is announced, it is premature to speak about this (Russia’s support),” he said.
Dvorkovich together with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and the governor for the Russian Federation in the IMF and the World Bank, ex-finance minister Alexei Kudrin took part in the forum dealing with the Sixth Millennium Development Goals (MDG-6) that opened in Moscow on Monday.
The Kremlin’s advisor noted that on the forum’s sidelines Lavrov and Kudrin met with Spain’s Finance Minister Elena Salgado to discuss Russia’s possible participation in solving the eurozone crisis and acquisition of Spain’s debt securities.
