MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday there was a risk this year's federal budget deficit could slightly exceed 3.7 percent of gross domestic product.
Putin told a meeting with government officials on the economy that it would not be a disaster if the deficit were to hit 3.8-3.9 percent of GDP, but that Russia should aim for a level of 3.7 percent of GDP.
