Siluanov said this during a speech at an expanded meeting of the budget committee in the Federation Council of Russia.

According to him, initially the Ministry of Finance planned to attract about 300 billion rubles in excess profit tax.

"Of these, from the amount that we planned, about 40 billion rubles were received. But the main payment period will be November-December," RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

Siluanov added that the plans could be implemented by the end of the year.

In August, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on a one-time tax of 10% on excess profits.
