The contemporary system of interbudgetary financial flows started developing as early as in 1991. By that time before the formation of the independent Russian State the budgetary system of the former RFSR existed as part of the Soviet Union centralized budgetary system. By 1991 the USSR budgetary system presented the totality of all the budgets of the country integrated into the USSR state budget which fell into the union budget, the union republics’ state budgets, and that of state social insurance.
