European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has said that Russia will not be able to avoid a state default.
This was stated by von der Leyen to Bild, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“According to the latest forecasts, Russia’s GDP will shrink by 11%. The state default in Russia is only a matter of time,” she said.
The head of the EC believes that sanctions against Russia are getting stronger every week on the Russian economy.
Asked about the details of the sixth package of sanctions that are being prepared, she mentioned the Russian banking sector, including Sberbank.
She also said that measures should be taken against Russia’s oil exports. However, according to her, it is impossible to allow Russia to sell oil, which is now going to the EU, in other markets at higher prices, so the EU is “developing reasonable mechanisms” to overcome this situation.
