The document stipulates a common procedure for providing federal subsidies, grants and other purposeful inter-budgetary transfers to the budgets of Russian regions.
The government resolution also sets common requirements for the procedure of providing federal budget subsidies to legal entities from among the producers of goods, works and services, as well as to government corporations and other entities.
