Washington, April 20 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned Russia it faces the risks of a "credit bubble swelling up" due to the rapid growth in consumer credit in the past decade, Russia's Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak said Friday.


"According to the IMF's report, ... it is necessary to prevent the swelling of the credit bubble in emerging markets, especially in the Russian Federation. The IMF rates the risks of Russian economy and the emerging economies overheating is very high," Storchak said.
