Putin says no need to rush to change Russia's budget rules

MOSCOW (Reuters) - There is no need to rush and change Russia's current budget rules that limit budget spending President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

"Given the global economy risks, not just ours, I would not hurry with the abolition of fiscal rules, but it is a decision that is a responsibility of the government," Putin told journalists after his annual call-in with the nation.
