MOSCOW, June 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Former Finance Minister of Russia Alexei Kudrin once more made a statement about the need of economic reforms in Russia, inclusive by means of competent investment.
"The "oil curse" factor doesn't allow to compare this reserves with public funds", said the ex-minister speaking in the "Civil G20" forum today. In Kudrin's opinion there's lack of connection between the authorities' decisions and the society, and that may be a serious obstacle for future reforms.
In his speech Kudrin also pointed out that "Russia is not only in the middle of changing 'command' economy for market relations, but also in its way to a free society".
