The Ministry of Finance of Russia published budget reports, hiding some of the data.
The agency clarified that such a decision is connected with an attempt to avoid additional sanctions from the states of the collective West. Therefore, the publication presents only general data on revenues and expenditures of the treasury and on the size of the budget surplus.
In response to Moscow’s special operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine, the leaders of the countries of the European Union have already approved the sixth package of anti-Russian sanctions. The debate about the content of the document continued for a long time. One of the main issues on the agenda was the embargo on Russian energy carriers. So far, Brussels has shown its readiness to refuse only a small part of the oil supplied from the Russian Federation.
