in spite of the fact that during the current year the budget too is imposed with considerable deficiency, the head of financial department has opposed expenditure of means of Reserve fund in 2011. In its opinion, there are inflationary and external risks, and on their background to spend fund is inexpedient.

The MAYOR radiated optimism on the given indicator - its forecast made 3,5 - 3,8 % from gross national product. Pessimistic And. Kudrin objected: in its opinion, total deficiency of the federal budget should make approximately 4,1 - 4,2 %.
the Difference in estimations even has drawn attention of premieres - the minister of the country Vladimir Putin who has suggested A.Kudrin to look in the end of the year, what ministry considers is better.
initially deficiency of the federal budget of the Russian Federation on 2010. Has been planned at level of 5,3 %. In process of receipt of additional incomes (the prices for oil have appeared above, than it was expected) this figure has started to be reduced. However the greatest contribution to plug reduction between incomes and budget expenses was brought by the government which catastrophically has not had time to master all items in the budget.
