MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet on Wednesday with members of the Russian government to discuss measures to ensure sustainable development of the economy and stability in the social sphere in 2015, the Kremlin press service said.
It will be the first such meeting in 2015, although the government has already had a number of meetings, both in narrow and extended formats, to discuss anti-crisis measures. Since the beginning of the year, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has held a series of meetings with the government dedicated to stability measures in concrete sectors of the economy and in the social sphere.
At a government meeting on January 19, Medvedev suggested all anti-crisis proposals be summarized and a “balanced system of measures be agreed to help overcome the existing problems in the economy.”
At his last meeting with the government in 2014, on December 25, Putin said it would be expedient to use anti-crisis measures that had proved their efficiency in the previous crisis of 2008-2009. “It is necessary to coordinate the work of all ministries and agencies with the presidential administration and the Central Bank. It is necessary to be in control of the situation,” he said, adding that if need be it would be right to use the so-called manual control regime.
