Quick war to bring oil prices to $20 per barrel

The Russian Economy Ministry believes that the military operation in Iraq will not last long, and it will lead to a decrease in oil prices to the level of $20 per barrel, Deputy Economy Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told journalists today. So, the average price of Urals oil, according to the ministry's estimations, will be $25 per barrel, Dvorkovich said.

On the whole, the situation in Iraq will not result in any radical change in the Russian economy; "the Iraqi conflict influences the dynamics of the world economy and the economic growth dynamics in the USA and Europe, first of all", he noted.

Russia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs is seriously concerned about the state of health of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Sergei Skrypal's niece, Victoria Skripal, said that her uncle had already died.
