MOSCOW, May 30. /TASS/. Russia's economy may grow next year if oil prices stay at around $45 per barrel, Sberbank CEO Herman Gref said on Monday in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV channel.
"If the curernt trend continues, and the oil price will be around $45 per barrel,… next year, most likely, we will be a small growth of the Russian economy," he said.
Gref added that oil price in 2020 could reach $60 per barrel, and by 2024 could increase to $80 per barrel.
On May 26 the price of Brent crude oil exceeded the mark of $50 per barrel for the first time since November 4, 2015. The maximum price for
July Brent crude oil futures contract reached $50.08 per barrel, according to the London’s ICE Futures Europe.
