ST. PETERSBURG, June 18. /TASS/. BRICS Bank will start working no earlier than next year, Vnesheconombank (VEB) Deputy Chairman Sergey Vasilyev said on Thursday.

"BRICS is currently not an economic association, it’s a political [organization]," Vasilyev said. "We already see BRICS economic integration. Setting up a bank is a key, a core of future economic integration and expansion of investment cooperation. Some BRICS Bank projects will really start no earlier than next year," he added.

"The Bank’s existing strategy up to 2020 is being implemented by gross figures even under sanctions. We don’t see significant threats, though some difficulties may occur in details. In principal, it is hard to plan because there are great currency risks," Vasilyev noted.
