Russian government's top priority is to secure internal social stability, President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.
Speaking at a meeting with the ministers and Central Bank's head, Putin said the anti-crisis plan should ensure acceptable pace of inflation, controllable level of foreign debt and keeping existing reserves.
"The plan must guarantee social stability. But that could be achieved only if the acceptable economic parameters are preserved," Interfax news agency quoted Putin as saying.
The president stressed that only microeconomic stability could attract private investors. He also said the federal budget will have to be optimized using the experience of 2008 financial crisis.
