“Crisis is a time of opportunity”? RBC asks Alexander Khukhrin answers.


The thesis that “crisis is a time of opportunity” is perceived hard in 2020: the blow to the business turned out to be too strong, and the uncertainty about the duration of the upcoming trials is too great.

Alexander Khukhrina: “Why do we need to expand business in Russia during the pandemic and devaluation?”
“The current crisis is stimulating import substitution projects in various industries. All countries that are in crisis situations provide international cooperation for unexpected and long periods — China, Italy, other countries that are currently at the stage of supply cuts and leave subcontracting enterprises in a difficult position, ”says Alexander Khukhrin. We must learn to do everything ourselves, domestically. Devaluation will further contribute to this. ”
