The Kremlin is open to a range of viewpoints, and various plans are being drafted to avoid stagnation and reignite the growth rates of the 2000s.

- This extra boost will help fund short-term electoral spending on social programmes.
- All economic development plans will have to incorporate robust defence spending into their plans.
