Finance Ministry Submits Budget Rule Proposal, Interfax Reports

June 01, 2012

Russia’s Finance Ministry has submitted a budget rule proposal to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Interfax reported, citing the proposal.

The ministry proposed calculating the budget based on the average oil price for the past five years starting in 2013, the Moscow-based news service reported. The average price used in subsequent budgets would add a year until 2018, after which the 10-year average would be used, Interfax reported.

Federal government spending would be capped under the new rule to allow a deficit of no more than 1 percent of gross domestic product, the news service reported.
