European media: Russia can easily survive the coronavirus thanks to Putin's policies


Russian economy does not show signs of panic. After all, it is reliably isolated from the global crisis and will be able to survive the COVID-19 epidemic without problems, thanks to its competent policy President Vladimir Putin. This is written by Lidovky - the oldest daily newspaper in the Czech Republic.


The coronavirus pandemic caused a global economic crisis. Oil prices fell to $ 30 per barrel. The ruble fell by a third. So Russia is simply obliged to feel the negative consequences. But this is not so. That is why Russian President Vladimir Putin is feeling confident.

The reason is not that Russia diversifies its economy, defeats corruption, protects property rights or enhances healthy internal competition. This has nothing to do with crisis moments. Russia's economy is less sensitive to the current shock, as it has isolated itself over the past six years.

- Lidovky quotes The Economist magazine.

It is noted that after the annexation of Crimea and the outbreak of conflict in the Donbass, the West and Russia exchanged sanctions. At the same time, the main goal of Russian macroeconomic policy was not to support growth, but to strengthen the economy, which could withstand, despite external pressure. Now Russia has one of the largest foreign exchange reserves. They will be enough for the next few years. In addition, the depreciation of the ruble reduced the damage caused by lower oil prices.

Another strong point of the Russian economy is its low external debt. Since Russian companies have been cut off from international capital markets since 2014, they can only borrow domestically. While the largest Western companies are literally mired in debt.

The publication also draws attention to the plan recently presented by the Russian leader as a response to the coronavirus epidemic. The conclusion of analysts agrees on one thing: economic collapse does not threaten Russia. They are more worried about social problems, as in Russia there are many citizens working as private entrepreneurs. And they may lose part of their income.

    Russian economy shows no signs of panic

    He laughed heartily. laughing Spelling mistake. I must write - the economy shows no signs of life for a very long time. We had an economy under the USSR, but with the collapse of a powerful state, the economy also disappeared. Therefore, we now have nothing to lose, it remains only to observe how others are crumbling.

    One-sided judgment, though Putin’s policy, has done its job. Since the days of the USSR, we have a well-functioning anti-epidemic system that not only defeated parasites like Rishta (worms under the skin 25 cm long in Central Asia in their canals), but also developed a cure for Ebola today.

      Ever since the USSR ... development of a cure for Ebola

      In July 2015, WHO announced successful tests of an effective Ebola vaccine. The rVSV-ZEBOV vaccine, developed by the American pharmaceutical company Merck & Co., was tested in Guinea on 4 volunteers and by the ring method.

      Where is the USSR and where is the cure for Ebola?

          I don’t know where the medicine is. Ebola is a virus. There is and cannot be a cure for the virus, there is a vaccine, i.e. such a thing that helps the body develop antibodies against the virus.

            From Ebola? Remdesivir (Remdesivir), for example. You see, if we don’t know something, this does not mean that this does not exist.

              Remdesivir (development code GS-5734) is a new antiviral drug in the class of nucleotide analogues. It was developed by Gilead Sciences for the treatment of Ebola virus and Marburg virus infections.
              If its name is written in Russian letters, this does not mean that this is a Russian development.

            There is also symptomatic treatment. It supports the body while it produces antibodies. And there are also drugs that can directly or indirectly weaken the activity of viruses, and there are many, many more things that you can’t tell in SMS.

        How simple it is for you. The manuals explain all Russian and Soviet failures, technological backwardness, poor quality of life, total corruption, the conduct of aggressive wars, the lack of high-quality medicine, science, disgusting education. But what's there, you can continue indefinitely.

              Well, then for a start I want to hear from you something specific. What exactly did Russia fail in?
              Does Russia show technological backwardness in all sectors?
              What quality of life is for you (case study)
              With whom is Russia in a state of aggressive war?
              Let’s omit about the quality of medicine (since this is the very topic of the dispute).
              What kind of education do you personally have (what kind of diploma, scientific degree) to judge the quality of Russian science and “disgusting education” (by the way, keep this in mind when you name yours).
              Let's go!

                Yes on all counts. You probably live in Moscow and think that in the rest of the Russian Federation there is also asphalt on the road and there are no pits, hospitals .. C'mon, what hospitals, a simple first-aid post are in the regional dying centers. Yes, and what is the size of a bribe for an exam at a university? Medically, for example. I have not been to Russia for many years, but I have relatives and friends who live there and work. About Crimea in general is a separate song.

                  Everything is unfounded, at the level of emotions. Nothing to answer my question.
                  So, I’ll try to answer what you managed to write:
                  I am not a Russian. There is corruption all over the world and more than in Russia. It's just that in many countries you respect, it is "legalized." Hospitals in the provinces of the states you respect are also very different from the powerful universal clinics located in the state. providing. But in fact, even these today have shown their complete failure (Italy, France, Spain, USA).
                  About Crimea is really better "generally keep quiet")

                  That was why Crimea was dragged here? But "the word is not a sparrow, it flew out - you won’t catch it," so since you mentioned Crimea, rake it off - you didn’t see such a devastation in medicine as there, except in the poorest countries of Africa, and even in the villages of Africa, in cities there will even be better than in Crimea, so the transition of Crimea under the wing of Russia only had a positive effect on medicine ...
                  And you wrote about corruption there, about bribes in our institutes ?? You first find out who to give this bribe to, and this is very difficult at the present time, and who would be talking about corruption in our honey. universities wrote? Not more than six months ago your fellow believer and fellow citizen, without leaving my chair in the kindergarten, I easily “organized” the session in one of your medical schools, such as “such a good boy”, so tell your tales that “this is Russia”, tell someone else ... bully

                    I have a friend, I wanted to "return" to the Russian Federation, although I never lived there, he lived in the USSR. So he went on reconnaissance, to see what and how there. Shoot, so to speak. So he was including in the clinic. So:

                    such a devastation in medicine, as there, have not seen almost anywhere, well, except for the poorest countries in Africa

                    I used your words because it’s easier for you to understand what he saw there. But actually, I understand why you always try to prove something to me, referring to Ukraine. Against her background, you look good. Especially when you consider how much you earned for oil and how much you stole. Ukrainians have a different scale.
