MOSCOW, April 26. /TASS/. The Federal Customs Service remitted 1.2 trillion rubles ($18.3 bln) to the Russian budget from the year beginning as of April 26, head of the Customs Andrei Belyaninov said on Tuesday.
"Gathering is very arduous so far. While we are above [target] in terms of import, export figures are linked to expectations on oil, oil products, and gas price. This is a fairly significant market for us, related to export of Russian commodities," Belyaninov said.
Russian Customs transferred 949.3 bln rubles ($14.4 bln) in January - March 2016. The amount transferred in March totaled 331.9 bln rubles ($5 bln).
