MOSCOW, November 18, /ITAR-TASS/. The use of subsurface resources this year has generated four times more budget revenues than expected, Russian Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Sergey Donskoy told a meeting of the Environmental Public Council on Monday.
“Since the beginning of the year, the federal budget has received 160 billion rubles for the use of mineral resources. Initially, budget revenues were estimated at 42 billion rubles. Thus, we managed to make this figure almost four times higher within eleven months,” Donskoy said, adding that the highest income was produced by one-time payments for the use of hydrocarbons - more than 148 billion rubles.
