ITAR-TASS/. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects that Russian federal budget surplus will make 0.3% in 2014 against 0.5% deficit in 2013, economist of the IMF European Department Antonio Spilimbergo told a media briefing on Wednesday.

He added that current non-oil deficit of the federal budget has made around ten percent and, according to the IMF estimates, it was needed to toughen budget policy as long as Russian market climate improved.
