The Russian Federal Government recorded a budget deficit of around RUB 2.58 trillion in the first two months of 2023, according to the Ministry of Finance. It was the widest deficit for the period on record, with spending rising by 51.5% from the corresponding period of the previous year to RUB 5.74 trillion, largely due to spending on the country’s invasion of Ukraine. In the meantime, revenues from oil and gas slumped by 46.4% to RUB 0.947 trillion. The EU and G7 nations aggressively reduced the imports of Russian energy and imposed restrictions on tankers to export energy to third states, while Moscow halted gas flows to Europe in retaliation to sanctions. Besides restrictions from the West, global recession concerns drove energy prices to plummet, further pressuring Russian revenues. The widening deficit in Russia’s budget forced the Kremlin to tap into its sovereign rainy-day fund to cover its expenses, an unprecedented move that underscores the hit to Russia’s finances. source: Federal Treasury Of Russia
