GORKI, October 23 (Itar-Tass) — Additional resources of Russia’s budget will make up 322 billion roubles in 2012, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told a meeting devoted to the budget for 2012-2014.
This year’s budget received main revenues not from the oil and gas sector, but from other spheres of economy – around 210 billion roubles.
“The budget will get additional funds from privatization of Sberbank’s shares – 150 billion roubles and from Rosneftegaz’s dividends – around 50 billion roubles,” he said.
Medvedev emphasized that these funds will be earmarked for the social sphere, road and energy infrastructure and development of Russia’s Far East.
He added that 20 billion roubles will be injected into reforming the country’s housing and public utilities sector.
