Russia's federal budget surplus in 2008 is expected to reach 1.15 trillion rubles ($46 billion), Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov said on Monday.

He said budget revenues would increase by 1.4 trillion rubles ($56 bln) year on year, while expenditures would rise by 313.3 billion rubles ($12.5 bln).

The federal budget posted an estimated surplus of 1.78 trillion rubles ($72.7 billion) in 2007, compared with 1.99 trillion rubles ($81.3 billion) in 2006, the Finance Ministry said in mid-January.
