MOSCOW, May 21 /ITAR-TASS/. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, in an interview published in Komsomolskaya Pravda Wednesday, has estimated the probability of a pessimistic economic development scenario at two to three percent.

In response to question as to which economic development scenario is worth expecting soon, Medvedev said that there exist two scenarios. "The first one is moderately optimistic. When the economy manifests now a slight upturn and now a slight downturn, ordinary citizens do not feel that, usually". The second scenario is, in his view, "a bad one imposed on us by the West". However, the Premier assured the readers, the government, in that case as well, will continue undeviatingly to fulfil all social obligations it assumed. "My estimate is that 2-3%, not more," Medvedev said, referring to the probability of such a scenario.

"However, that would be a tough scenario and, if it arises, we shall, certainly, have to respond to it as well. If so, many forms of interstate cooperation, to which we have already got accustomed, may just disappear," the Head of Government said in conclusion.
