"We are not going to kill the goose laying golden eggs and will preserve lucrative terms for investments in the energy sector to be made by Russian and foreign investors", he added.
Commenting on the possibility of dependence of the Russian economy on the situation on the world oil market, Sharonov recalled that "the budget intends moderate, even conservative prices of oil, making it possible calmly to live through a large downfall to about 18 dollars per barrel".
In addition, a stabilisation fund has now become operative, accumulating the superprofit from the incomes gained on the oil market. "Part of the revenue of the federal budget has already been put in the stabilisation fund. The excessive steam of petrodollars on the Russian economy can now be blown out", Sharonov said.
