The ruble in 2019 may be very weak under the influence of current and expected anti-Russian sanctions, said the chief economist and the Deputy head of Vnesheconombank Andrei Klepach, quoted by “Interfax”.
“I don’t think it is possible the pressure on the ruble]. Rate until the end of the year will remain at the current level, maybe even stronger. But next year, even outside the context of sanctions, the ruble will fall,” — said Klepach.
According to him, the sanctions have had a significant impact on the Russian economy, destabilizirovat financial and currency markets. For them, the country “cut off from the world market borrowings”.
Klepach also warned of a possible outflow of capital from Russia. According to his estimates, it could reach $ 60 billion instead of a previously projected 30 billion.
