The finance minister also said the rouble’s fall has compensated for a mere 50% of the Russian budget’s losses from the oil price slump.
“It only seems that the rouble’s fall has fully compensated (for the budget’s losses from the oil price slump), Siluanov said. “It did compensate for about half of the fall, because the lower the price of oil, the less we earn.”
