Gref: Western sanctions not very sensitive for Russian economy yet

MOSCOW, Aug 31 (PRIME) -- Western sanctions are not very sensitive for the Russian economy in the short-term, but the country will feel them later, national top lender Sberbank CEO German Gref told Rossiya 24 television channel on Friday.

УThe scale of sanctions is now such that we do not particularly feel them in the short-term, but in the medium and long-term they will affect both our and global economy. The volume of sanctions that is beginning to work today does not concern only the Russian economy, itТs the U.S.ЦChina, the U.S.ЦTurkey, Iran, North Korea, etc. If we put it together into a common and whole, IТm afraid that the world economy will feel all this,Ф he said.

On Monday, U.S. anti-Russian sanctions over MoscowТs alleged involvement in the March poisoning of the Skripal family in the U.K. came into force. The second package of sanctions that can affect lending to Russian corporate bodies could be introduced in November.
