CANNES, November 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia is ready to assist euro zone countries suffering from financial problems via the IMF, but the precise amounts of its assistance will depend on particular circumstances, Acting Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said.
“Russia is ready to add resources to the IMF for helping the solution of the euro zone problems. However, it would be premature to discuss the precise sum. Every case must be analyzed separately, depending on the support of this or that country. Other states must make decisions, as well. Russia cannot resolve the problem alone,” he said in answer to an Itar-Tass question.
Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak also could not tell Itar-Tass the sum Russia was prepared to assign in support of the crisis-stricken Greece. “Russia has resources, but every allocation must be founded,” he said.
Euro zone countries have asked Russia for nothing, he said. “That is good. The Europeans hope to solve their problems by themselves,” he remarked.
