“In the past we put some of the money from oil and gas in our reserves but this year everything will be spent,” he added.

According to Siluanov, the money will be used to pay pensions, support families with children and “conduct special operations” in Ukraine. “We have the resources,” he assured.

Russia is receiving record amounts of hydrocarbon exports, mainly because prices have soared. European Union member states are trying to reduce their dependence on Russian hydrocarbons but have so far not agreed to phase out Russian oil, largely due to Hungary’s refusal.
