Kudrin said that the messages on the classification saw the “surprise”. “But I think it’s not because the costs will add on some secret operation, it’s just some already existing articles cover”, — he said.
In General budget expenditures, including on defense, be reduced due to the fact that revenues have decreased and will decrease the budget deficit, said the former Finance Minister. “So I think just doing the secret part of the articles that were previously open,” he said.
“I am the way, against it. I think that now we do not live in a situation where you need somehow to significantly increase the secret articles of the budget. What’s been revealed, it should be [openly]. And the fact that it is not necessary, has long been closed. So I don’t quite understand this expansion of the secret articles,” — said the head of CSR.
