VLADIVOSTOK, September 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that Chubais and initial reformists “have something to be scolded for,” but this is they who have made the transition from the planned economy to the market one.
“We faced several problems during the transition from the planned economy to the market economy in Russia. This was a painful stage,” Putin acknowledged in reply to the questions of the participants in the APEC business summit. “Many people are scolding our initial reformists, a remarkable representative of which is (Anatoly) Chubais sitting in this hall. Probably, they have something to be scolded for, but they have made this transition after all,” the president underlined.
