And Russia should take into account the factor of low oil prices

The world oil prices are unlikely to ever exceed $60 per barrel in the future, according to VEB Chairman Sergey Gorkov, TASS reports.

"It's unlikely that oil will ever exceed $60 per barrel. Never, except for some cataclysms, which can be very short-lived," Gorkov said.

According to him, Russia should take into account the factor of low oil prices as a serious challenge for the economy and the budget.
