Russia Slams S&P Downgrade For “Excessive Pessimism”

Russia Slams S&P Downgrade For “Excessive Pessimism” (ZeroHedge, Jan 26, 2015):

¬†Well that didn’t take long. Russian Finance Minister Siluanov has responded to S&P’s “junk” downgrade of The Russian Federation:
  • *SILUANOV: S&P DOWNGRADE OF RUSSIA SHOWS ‘EXCESSIVE PESSIMISM’
  • *SILUANOV: NO REASON TO EXPECT `MASS’ DEBT REDEMPTION REQUESTS

Adding in his statement that he “sees no reason to dramatize” the situation, Siluanov adds that the cut should not have any serious effect on Russia’s capital markets. We assume by “dramatize,” he means – they wil not be ‘visiting’ the local ratings agencies offices for a chat anytime soon.
