According to the press service of the government, he said this during a meeting led by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Siluanov noted that this also ensures the fulfillment of instructions of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin following his message to the Federal Assembly, the implementation of national projects and the preservation of macroeconomic and financial stability even in the face of steadily low oil prices.

In turn, Energy Minister Alexander Novak emphasized that the current situation in the oil market is within the forecast.

On March 9, oil prices fell more than 30% after the OPEC + meeting, which culminated in Russia's withdrawal from the deal.

In this regard, at international bidding, the euro exchange rate exceeded 86 rubles, and the dollar exchange rate reached 75 rubles.

Later, Brent and WTI crude oil recovered about a third of the collapse during the auction.
