“According to this plan, we will allocate 1.375 trillion rubles [$20.9 billion] for these measures. This is not a direct spending from the federal budget, there is a part that includes indirect costs, another part will include additional allocation of the state guarantees,” Shuvalov said at a government meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Shuvalov added that a portion of the funds will be taken from the Russian National Wealth Fund.
Shuvalov also listed several points of the anti-crisis plan, including allocating $760 million to support agriculture, $304 million to support industry, and $240 million for public health.
Earlier on Tuesday, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said that Russia will direct some of its financial reserves to support fiscal stability.
In November 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the Russian government would not use reserve funds to solve the country’s current economic problems without carefully considering whether it would have a positive outcome for the economy as a whole.
