He probably didnt say that since I never seen that even in Russian news. As well, $75B isnt 5% of GDP. Are you sure he said that or is that what Finn Media is saying?
I am also curious how it will cost Russia money when they cannot buy western goods? Can someone explain that to me? Was the import business worth $75B? Cause when you purchase your own made goods, you GAIN revenue. Logically, what your media ia claiming that medvedev said, sure does not sound right. $75B, does that also include debt repayment? If so, that doesnt count.
