The dollar exchange rate will be, as it is on the day of conducting calculations by the commission. Yuhym Fix stated this during the first session of the working group on conducting damage analysis, as TASS reports.
According to Fix, the result of the work conducted by the so-called evaluative commission will be an analytical document with the conclusions. The damage will be estimated from the end of 1991till March 2014. All the problems Crimea faced after annexation will be included in the final amount. Those problems are water, energy and food blockades.
According to the report, the evaluation commission will take into account the dollar exchange rate, as it will on the day of conducting calculations. “We should have such an indicator…the exchange rate which we will use. Perhaps, the accepted norm is the dollar exchange rate on the day of conducting the evaluations,” Fix added.
As it was reported, Head of Russia’s Government Dmitry Medvedev entrusted his ministries, including the Finance Ministry, to provide support for the activity of State Duma working group on “damage assessment in Crimea over the period when it was a part of Ukraine.”
