ST. PETERSBURG, January 28. /TASS/. The anti-crisis plan set forth by Russia’s Economic Development Ministry, implies expenditures at 750 bln rubles ($9.8 bln), with unbudgeted funds totaling around 210 bln rubles ($2.7 bln) worth of (finances from) the Anti-crisis fund, the Minister of Economic Development Aleksey Ulyukayev said on Thursday.
"It contains a budgeted part of 310 bln rubles worth of loans to be granted to constituent entities, it is lined in the budget. Taking it into consideration this [the funds aimed for implementation of the anti-crisis plan] totals around 750 bln rubles. If we don’t take what is budgeted we have around 210 bln rubles left, with funds from the Anti-crisis fund being the source," the minister said.
Currently the Russian government is finalizing the updated anti-crisis plan based on lower oil prices. On January 25, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev requested to prepare the document by February 1.
