The deputies of the Communist Party calling refuse to buy US government bonds

Deputies from the Communist Party Sergei Obukhov, and Valery Rashkin sent a request to the government to take measures to accelerate the repayment of the public debt of the Russian Federation at the expense of the sovereign funds instead of buying them on US Treasury bonds.

Request the text of which is at the disposal RIA Novosti, sent to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov and Chairman of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina.

“We ask you to take the necessary measures for the early repayment of the public debt of the Russian Federation at the expense of the Reserve Fund, as well as to completely abandon the practice of attracting credit funds with the highest interest rate, instead of using its own funds, located in the Reserve Fund and National Welfare Fund”, - said in a request.

According to the monthly report of the Ministry of Finance of the United States, Russia for the year (November 2014 to November 2015) has reduced investments in US government bonds for 20 billion dollars. In November 2014 the Russian Federation owned by US securities total value of $ 108 billion. However, in December 2014 gradually reduced their volume, as a result, in April 2015 she had papers to 66.5 billion dollars. In May, the figure began to rise again. In November 2015 the Russian securities purchased $ 6 billion. Now a total value of $ 88 billion, providing the Russian 15th place among foreign investors.

The communists say that in November, when Russian bonds purchased US $ 6 billion, was working on the law on the federal budget for 2016, which “provides an unacceptable reduction in a number of key items of expenditure.” For example, in 2016 in nominal terms, spending on health is reduced by 8%, education - by 8.5% (compared with 2015), wrote the deputies.

“At the same time, the budget for 2016 includes debt service costs in the amount of 4%. In other words, the Russian Federation in conditions of unacceptable cuts fundamentally important items of expenditure provides 4% of budget expenditures in 2016 (or $ 8.2 billion) on debt service, and its own funds in the amount of $ 6 billion in just one month invested in US debt, “- said the deputy.

“The meaning of our proposals can be summarized in three simple words:” Stop feeding Kansas! “. The government is outraged by the fact that the United States administered the endless anti-Russian sanctions, but it continues to invest budget funds in their securities. This policy is clearly not fit with Russia’s bid genuine sovereignty, if your money is placed in the US, what kind of independence in general is all about? All the more so in the case of aggravation of the situation, these tools can always freeze “, - said the secretary of the Communist Party Butts.
