Russia In Surplus With No Adverse Impact From Politically Low Oil Prices Of 70$ Per Barrel ~ Alexey Ulyukayev
MOSCOW, November 28. /TASS/. Oil prices at about 70 U.S. dollars per barrel will have no adverse impact on Russia’s budget, Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev said in an interview with Russia’s television Channel One on Friday.
He said a decline in the rouble’s exchange rate had mitigated impacts of plunging oil prices on the country’s budget. “For us as a spending unit, for the budgetary system, the rouble-denominated oil price is much more important than the dollar component,” he said.
