Wed, 05/13/2015 - 16:19
With Dr. Torbjörn Becker, Director of the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics
Falling oil prices deeply affect oil-producing countries in Russia, Central Asia and the Caucasus. In addition, sanctions against Russia impact these countries directly or indirectly. Also, Russia's economic crisis has reduced remittances sent home to Central Asia and the Caucasus by laborers working in Russia. Taken together, these factors create new economic and political dynamics in the region.
