William Browder, a long-time critic of Vladimir Putin’s regime, said world events have turned against Russia recently.Its involvement in Ukraine’s civil war led to damaging sanctions from Western nations, which have choked off economic growth.
At the same time, a tumble in oil prices worldwide has hit the nation’s biggest export.

Mr Browder, the CEO of Hermitage Capital – a Russian-focussed investment vehicle, gave the warning.He said: “I don’t think you can underestimate how bad the situation in Russia is right now, you’ve got oil below any measure where the budget can survive and you’ve got sanctions from the West. Russia is in what I’d call a real serious economic crisis”.
He said Russia’s central bank is keeping the economy together for now by burning through cash reserves.Speaking to US business channel CNBC, he added: “Eventually they’re going to run out of that money and when they do, that’s when the real trouble begins.”

Mr Browder theorised that economic trouble have led Mr Putin to become a more nationalistic leader.

A close friend of his died in Russian police custody while trying to investigate corruption.

He was kicked out of the country in 2005 after making allegations of his own against Mr Putin’s regime.
