There lies a problem. Putin ought not invest in anything besides the rule of law; other people should be able to, without fear of repercussions, and with faith in the system. Injection of money by decree serves only agents (Putin and, forgive the expression, his circle of corruption,) not the principals (honest businessmen, consumers, and country as a whole). Until a healthy economic (and, in Russia, this means primarily political) climate takes place, nothing is going to change. Taking away the power to “invest” from Putin is the only way to improve the situation in a sustainable way.
