“Everything lives, everything works.” Dmitry Peskov said that Russian business does not need massive assistance

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said on the air of the TV channel “Russia 24” that Russian business does not need help, since the situation in the country is different from what it was in 2020.

Last year we closed and we had a lockdown. And you and I sat at home, the economy stopped, and so on. This required targeted assistance measures. <…> Now the economy is working. Yes, the difficulties continue, continue, as after the earthquake, aftershocks. This also continues in the economy, but nevertheless the situation is different: everything lives on, everything works, experiences problems, but this no longer requires such massive assistance.

During the conversation, Peskov, describing the situation in the Russian economy, said: “Naturally, a crisis is a crisis.” At the same time, he noted that “the dynamics are improving,” and Russia is beginning to emerge from the crisis.

In 2020, after the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the Russian authorities introduced several measures to support citizens and businesses. Among them – payments to  people left without work,  tax refunds to self-employed, preferential loans for businesses, reduction of insurance premiums from salaries of small and medium-sized businesses. Economists criticized the government as not sufficient support measures.

    Second: Russia has no money to support the business.
    Third: Peskov, why don’t you take a vaccine against Corona? I have heard you refused it too!!!!!!!
