"From my point of view, the fiscal gap that arises is about 2 trillion rubles," Ulyukayev said, responding to a question about the budget deficit forecast in 2015.
He said that such a calculation would be true at the target oil price of $60 per barrel.
"The income gap is approximately one and a half trillion rubles. About 400-500 billion would also cover the additional costs associated with indexation (of pensions and social benefits - Ed.) first of all," the minister said.
