MOSCOW, November 9 (Itar-Tass) — Russia believes that Europe has enough resources to cope with the economic crisis, but it is ready to stretch a helping hand through the International Monetary Fund at any moment, the Kremlin’s top economic advisor, Arkady Dvorkovich, said on Wednesday.
“Europe has enough resources to tackle the problems, but we are ready to help through the IMF,” he said.
“This will be done as soon as necessary. The IMF resources will suffice till the end of the year. There are no doubts that decisions [on Russia’s support] will be taken timely,” he said.
“But we proceed from the assumption that Europe should take a decision on its own,” Dvorkovich said.
