MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. The Reserve Fund will be depleted in 2017, Deputy Finance Minister Alexey Lavrov said on Friday.
"2.1 trillion rubles ($33.7 bln) will be spent from the Reserve Fund this year and 1.1 trillion rubles ($17.6 bln) in the next year. The Reserve Fund will be exhausted and we will start using resources of the National Wealth Fund in the next year," the official said.
"Resources [of sovereign funds - TASS] are enough for the three-year period so far, if we treat them highly conservatively and limit [budget] deficit," Lavrov added.
