Hebelieves that deputies will be fighting for altering some basic figures "inorder to distribute spare money then".According to Grachyov, during the discussion of the main financialdocument, the parliament is usually unsatisfied with the strategic courseof the economy's development and distribution of funds to regions. "Budgetis the basis of the economic policy of the country and during itsdiscussion it is possible to influence this process.

He added that Russia should not hurrywith paying off $17bn in foreign debts, because "the state has obligationsto its citizens and these obligations should be the priority"..
