TABLE-Russia's 2017-2019 budget revenue proposals - agencies

MOSCOW, Oct 2 (Reuters) - The Russian Finance Ministry is due to submit its
2017-2019 budget proposals on Oct. 13, which envisage tighter spending and lower
budget deficits. 
    The ministry is looking for ways to cut costs and raise additional funds to
cover holes in the state budget caused by weak oil prices. 
    It wants to keep state spending intact but at the same time cut the budget
deficit by 1 percentage point in the next three years. This year's deficit may
reach 3.5-3.7 of gross domestic product. 
    The ministry said it would raise borrowing, both domestic and foreign, but
concrete plans are not yet publicly known. It had said previously it may raise
up to $7 billion on foreign markets in 2017. 
    Below are some of the revenue gathering proposals, revealed so far by the
ministry on how to raise additional funds, as reported by Russian news agencies
and compiled by Reuters.
