None of the current entourage of Russian President Vladimir Putin can affect him on the Ukraine. said Professor Vladislav Inozemtsev, who has a reputation in the West as one of the most objective of Russian economists, in an interview to Novoye Vremya, - reports UNIAN.
According to the expert, no one can oppose Vladimir Putin.
"No one will oppose Putin now, Putin points out would should be done and people do. Nevertheless, Putin does not consider himself an expert in economics and has at least ten people he listens to," - He said.
Inozemtsev said that "marketeers" were Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, and the head of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation Elvira Nabiullina and Finance Minister Anton Siluanov and even retired minister Aleksey Kudrin who sometimes come to Putin's office. There is also Sergei Glazyev, Andrei Belousov.
The Russian President, according to Inozemtsev, fears of radical change in the economy, let it go as it goes.
"Putin is going to listen to nobody regarding foreign policy. People like businessmen came to him when there was the "referendum" in Crimea and said:" Vova, what are you doing?" and he said to them: "I’m dealing with history and you are counting money. " Nobody can affect Putin regarding Ukraine," - summed up the Russian economist.
