Now Online: An Interview with Alexander Chubrik, Economist and Fellow with CASE – Centre for Social and Economic Research. Interviewer: Michał Potocki.
ALEXANDER CHUBRIK: There is no risk that Belarus will go bankrupt this year, even if the government does nothing to heal the current situation. However, I still have hope that this money [from Russia] will be used to convince others to start trusting our currency and the policy of the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus (NBRB). I also hope that our government will use these funds to eliminate the economic imbalance. If these expectations are not met, they will at least prolong our ability to survive.
