(Reuters) – Russian imports may drop by 30% this year but will not dwindle to zero, Tass news agency reported Alexei Kudrin, a former finance minister who now heads the state Audit Chamber, as saying on Friday.

It did not give more details. Last week a global banking industry lobby group predicted that Western sanctions would cut Russian imports by 28% in 2022.
