The Central Bank announced the scenario of the global financial crisis in 2023

 The Central Bank announced the scenario of the global financial crisis in 2023

The regulator assessed the risks against the background of the growth of global debt.

Analysts of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation have admitted a new global financial crisis, which may happen in 2023 and will be able to compare in scale with what the world experienced in 2008.

According to experts, such a development of events can happen because of the global debt that is accumulated by states and large corporations.

As reported in the draft of the main directions of the country’s monetary policy until 2024 published by the Central Bank, the debt has grown against the background of the pandemic.

So, as the Institute of International Finance found out, global debt grew by $ 24 trillion last year, moreover, its ratio to global GDP reached 355%. If we compare these indicators with 2008, then the ratio of GDP to debt was lower.

Central Bank experts suggest that the US authorities, as well as other countries, will follow the path of tightening monetary policy, and temporary pandemic measures that stimulate the economy will also be curtailed.

In addition, investors will start getting rid of risky stocks, which can bring down markets where bubbles are already being observed at the moment. A drop in oil prices to $ 40 per barrel will put an end to the crisis.

As a result, in two years the economy in the Russian Federation will experience a decline of 1.4-2.4%, inflation will rise and the Central Bank will have to resort to a tough policy.

The recovery, according to analysts, will take at least two or three quarters, but by 2024 an increase of 3-4% will begin.

As Topnews wrote earlier, the Central Bank has already stated that a new financial crisis is inevitable.

& #8220;Transit – is always bad, because it can be stopped. To produce, to be an important exporter for Europe & # 8211; this is much more important”, & #8211; she said in an interview on & #8220;Radio NV & #8221;.

Following the meeting of US Presidents Joe Biden and Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky, a statement was published in which the countries announced their intention to fight against the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

Both presidents also declared Russia’s “aggression” against Ukraine.

According to RIA & # 8220;News & #8221;, the statement says that the construction of the SP-2 is an energy threat to the country, but also indicates the preservation of Ukraine’s transit status and its intention to deal with the security of gas supplies to Europe in the period before the launch of the Russian project.

The United States has stated that it will not allow the transformation of the Nord Stream-2 into a geopolitical weapon of Russia, and will continue to apply sanctions in the field of energy diplomacy.

The statement states the intention of the two countries, using the policy of “sustainable, effective and long-term solutions”, as well as the corporate governance reform, to strengthen the security of the Ukrainian energy sector.

Attempts will also continue to force Russia to answer for its aggression against a neighboring country.

Both leaders reproached the Russian authorities for violating the basic rule about not changing borders by force.

In addition, Washington will support Ukraine on the path to European integration.

According to Biden, the United States supports Ukrainian sovereignty. At the same time, according to the American leader, the commission on strategic partnership with the participation of both countries will start working again.

Its goal, for which Washington will allocate $ 60 million, will be the emergence of mechanisms for strategic defense.

“The governments of Ukraine and the United States support efforts to increase the capacity to supply gas to Ukraine from diversified sources, ”, & # 8211; the document says.

In turn, Zelensky promised Biden to hand over to the United States prisoners from the self-proclaimed republics of Donbass and the Russian Federation, or rather 450 people.

Zelensky also spoke about the US promise to impose sanctions against Nord Stream-2 if the project creates energy problems for Ukraine, TASS reports.
