March 15, 2017 00:10


Russia has transferred nearly 78 million dollars as an annual contribution to the budget of the United Nations. This was published on the website of the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations.

“Russia has transferred the amount of 77 888 309 dollars as the payment of the accrued contribution to the regular budget of the United Nations” - the press release clarified. As TASS explains, the size of contributions to the UN budget is being set depending on the country’s average GDP over the 10-year period, per capita income and external debt.

Russia’s share of the budget now makes up 2.5 percent, 22 percent of the costs of the United States Organization (3 billion dollars) are covered by the USA. The contributions for the year 2017 have been transferred by more than 50 countries for the time being, these include China (nearly 200 million dollars). A state that has not make payments to the budget of the Organization for two years becomes deprived of the right to vote in the UN General Assembly.

In February the list of such countries included Venezuela, Libya and Sudan. On January 14 the then Permanent Representative of the United States to the UN Samantha Power commented on the debate in the US Congress concerning the possibility of reduction or refusal from contributions to the United Nations. According to her, if the United States will cut on the funding of the Organization, the primary role in it will be played by Russia and China.
