She said in Russia money is protected better, while no one knows what happens to it abroad "in a year or five."
"The rules of the game may be changed unilaterally. The origin of capitals will seem suspicious or there will be another pretext to find fault with. The accounts will be blocked, other measures will be taken and you won’t prove the truth," she said.

She said. "We would like domestic businesses to take into account interests of the country.

To sum it up, we want businesses to show patriotism."
