ST. PETERSBURG, June 21 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s government obligations and budgetary expenditures will not depend on oil prices, Russian President Vladimir Putin pledged on Thursday.
According to the president, who spoke at the Petersburg International Economic Forum, Russia’s economy, undiversified as it is, has a big share of uncompetitive enterprises. More to it, the oil and gas deficit is dangerously high. “Such economy is very vulnerable, that is why we need not merely a deficit-free budget but a budget with a good margin of safety,” Putin stressed.
“A new budget rule will be adopted in the nearest time, under which “neither state liabilities, nor budgetary expenditure, nor long-term investment programs will depend on oil prices, and excess profits will go to replenish funds,” he said.
