Money of future Russian pensioners suggested to spend for development of wind stations. In the future authors of an initiative expect to beat off invested funds. The RUSNANO company in which the CEO is Anatoly Chubais addressed to the Association of the Non-state Pension Funds (ANSPF) with the offer to invest the money put to future pensioners in "green" power. In ANPF agreed that in an initiative there is a rational grain, however the existing legislative restrictions do not allow to make it. The Central Bank reported that the regulator already prepared the draft document which will potentially allow private funds to bypass the bans and will allow them to invest the means put to citizens. At the same time, Izvestia notes, a number of experts are sure that modern Russian realities exclude success of an idea of RUSNANO. – In Russia for an investment of pension means in similar initiatives absolute obstacles for the present remain, – Evgeny Biyezbardis told journalists. The interlocutor emphasized that the non-state pension funds need to keep high liquidity of means – it is always necessary to have an opportunity to quickly withdraw money from investments. An investment to wind stations, according to him, will not allow to make it. Let's remind that the head of RUSNANO Anatoly Chubais suggested to impose "a carbon tax" in Russia earlier to urge on industrialists to use environmentally friendly energy. Deputies of the State Duma criticized this idea. Photo: Pixabay to Share: investments of NPF of pension of RUSNANO Chubais energy
