Russian Press Review: VLADIMIR PUTIN PROMISES TO RESOLVE THE HOUSING ISSUE

ИТАР-ТАСС

Member of the board of the institute for modern development Yevgeny Gontmakher told the Komsomolskaya Pravda the following: "in for a penny, in for a pound: Putin has to write another article, this time about finance, to explain where he will get all these funds from. The objective is interesting and fine, but how can one accomplish it given the fact that next year budget expenditure has been cut? And if we should live through 2012 without upheavals, the years 2013 and 2014 will be difficult. Ideally of course, the money should be generated by the economy. But it is still unclear how it should do it."

LES FOLLES PROMESSES DU CANDIDAT VLADIMIR POUTINE

Le Figaro

De leur côté, des experts russes jugent «irréalistes» les promesses du candidat. «Pour commencer, il n'y a pas trace du moindre financement de ces mesures dans le budget 2012-2014. Quant aux prévisions démographiques, elles sont inatteignables, sauf à prévoir une émigration forcée de la population chinoise», évalue Igor Yourgens, coauteur d'un rapport sur «La Russie du XXIe siècle». Selon lui, Poutine multiplierait les promesses «électoralistes» dans l'espoir de dégonfler le mécontentement ambiant.
