Bashkortostan is one of the leaders by the volume of its budget in Volga federal district.

“By the volume of revenues and expenses of the consolidated budget the Republic holds very high positions both in Volga federal district and in Russia in a whole” — the Minister of finances RB Ruzalia Khismatullina reported in the course of the last online conference with internet users — “According to the results of the first half of 2011 we are the second in Volga federal district and on the 11th place in Russia”.

At that the Minister has underscored that our showings per capita aren't so high and if dividing the budget revenues and expenses on the number of people, living in the Republic, Bashkortostan turns out to be just on the 8th-9th places in Volga federal district and on the 64th in Russia.

Ruzalia Khismatullina has mentioned that small subsidies from the federal exchequer are transferred to the republican budget, while about 300 billion rubles of tax and non-tax incomes are formed on the territory of Bashkortostan and transferred to the Russian budget system, i.e. 65-70% of the Republican budget.
