MOSCOW, June 13 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s former finance minister Alexei Kudrin once again declared about the necessity of economic reforms in Russia, including those aimed at the improvement of the investing quality.

Kudrin considers as insufficient the interaction between decisions made by the government and the public community, which seriously hinders the future reforms.
