The results of the work of the state customs committee over eight months, the updating of infrastructure at border crossing points, and the transition to electronic customs were discussed at a working meeting at the Palace of Independence. The President received a report by the head of the Committee. From January to August, almost 6 billion rubles arrived in the national budget. These are payments controlled by the State Customs Committee. Russia's tax maneuver in the oil industry has become one of the reasons for the decrease in revenues from export customs duties on oil products. Nevertheless, growth is observed in other payments controlled by the Customs Committee. Now the committee is taking steps to compensate these losses.
