According to the press service of the regional parliament, the regional budget deficit increased by 4,3 billion rubles in 2020 alone. They plan to cover the budget deficit with loans.

In addition to the coronavirus, due to which the collection of taxes has decreased, the lack of income appeared due to the increased tariff difference between payments from the population and economically justified tariffs. The deputies approved the decision to take out a loan for 4,3 billion rubles, if there are no other sources of income. In particular, a lot of work to attract financing is going on with the Russian government, so the loan amount in the end may be less.

In addition, about 1,8 billion will be directed to utilities. Another 1,2 billion will be received by power supply companies of the region to compensate for lost income due to the difference in tariffs, another 976,3 million - for the difference in tariffs for electricity and heat.
