Oreshkin said there are three key features of the crisis due to coronavirus

“the First is synchronicity. It actually affects almost all countries of the world. The second is quickness. We see rapidly rising unemployment in different countries, such a serious effect on the dynamics of the economy in a very short period of time. The third is depth, the fall in world GDP is much deeper than it was in the 2008-2009 crisis. In fact, it is a crisis of such volume for the first time since the Second world war”, – said Maxim Oreshkin.

He noted that although Russia’s economy is more prepared for the situation at the expense of resources, but it cannot remain an island of stability due to the strong depth of the global crisis.
