Soros: Putin wants to destroy the EU to avoid bankruptcy

2016-02-11 01:07 PM
The Russian president is trying to bring the collapse of the European Union, because in 2017 Russia may face bankruptcy.

This was wrote in his column for Project syndicate American financier George Soros.

He said the “Putin regime is threatened with bankruptcy in 2017, when the time for repayment of a large part of its foreign debt and political unrest may erupt earlier “.

” ratings of Putin remaining high, based on the contract with the company, which requires the government will ensure financial stability and slow but steady increase in living standards. Western sanctions, combined with a sharp decline in oil prices, do not allow the government to contain any of those promises, “- said Soros.

He said that the deficit of the Russian budget already accounts for 7% of GDP and the Putin regime will have to be reduced to 3%,” that inflation is not out of control. ” And it’s not like voters before the parliamentary elections this fall.

“The fact that Putin’s Russia and the EU are involved in a race with time, the question is which of them will fall first ... The most effective way avoid collapse for the Putin regime & ndash; is to ensure the premature collapse of the EU. The EU, which is bursting at the seams, will not be able to maintain sanctions imposed on Russia after its invasion of the Ukraine, “- says Soros.

” on the contrary Putin will be able to obtain significant economic benefits of the division of Europe and use communications that he worked closely with business interests and anti-European parties, “- he added.

According to Soros, the EU and the US are making a big mistake seeking a Putin ally to fight IDIL.

“IDIL a threat to them both, but this danger should not be exaggerated. Attacks jihadi terrorists, as they would not be terrible, not comparable to the threat posed from Russia “, - he said.
