MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. The Russian rating agency should be fully independent, highly professional, and free from lobbyism, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday at the "Russia Calling!" investment forum.
"The most important is that this rating agency is professional and independent in all senses of this word. It is assumed in this regard that all participants in this project will not have more than 5% and that a significant pool of members is contemplated to be invited exactly among private companies," the president said.
Such an agency will not do harm to competition but will prompt other similar institutions to compete instead. "I think this sphere will only benefit from that," the head of state said.
Work of the new agency should be free from lobbyism, particularly by nationality and any other motives, Putin said. "I am looking forward to staffing of management bodies of this agency with high-skilled specialists of international level. This is absolutely not important in this sense what nationality and citizenship these specialists will have," he added.
