The claim about privatisation

From the session shorthand report a round table in Council of the federation, Open Society devoted to privatisation Rosgosstrakh
Sergey Mitin, the vice-president of committee on ekonompolitike the State Dumas:
- I consider that a privatisation problem Rosgosstrakh and a problem of restoration of contributions - two absolutely different things. Besides, I should tell that a situation in the Russian insurance market today strained enough. From the insurance companies available about 2,5 thousand actually capable are an order of 100 large companies which possess a sufficient authorised capital stock. In conditions when in 1999 according to the accepted arrangements the Russian market will be opened for the western insurance companies, presence in Russia the capable independent companies will be an important problem. We should be objective - to the state today not before to be engaged in restoration and resuscitation Rosgosstrakh . In this situation, except privatisation, it is difficult to offer any other economic lever which could restore this company.
