earlier it became known that a budgeted deficit of the government of Greece (without expenses of municipal authorities and services of maintenance of public safety) for January - August 2010ã. Has made 14,49 mlrd euro that less than the similar indicator fixed following the results of January - August 2009ã. On a mark 21,38 mlrd euro.
