Director of the Institute of contemporary Economics Nikita Isaev commented on the us situation: “the Position Siluanov clear. But some of the statements does not go far. For a positive decision requires the consent of 85% of the votes and number of votes from each country corresponds to the share in the total capital of the IMF.
Even after recent reforms and raising the actual increase in the quotas, Russia’s share does not exceed 2.73 percent. Unfortunately, this is very far from the proportion of 15%, receiving a veto. In fact, this right is granted only to the United States with a share of 16.7%.
So only one position Siluanov and Russia’s voice is clearly insufficient to block the decision. This requires joining us, at least France, China, Italy, Saudi Arabia and Canada. We, of course, periodically demonstrating the wonders of diplomacy, but as we all know, this is not the case.”
Meanwhile, the estimated size of the IMF tranche, which hopes to Ukraine a billion dollars.
