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.
