People walk past a display of a currency exchange office in St.Petersburg, Russia, Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015. A day after a top ratings agency cut Russia’s rating to junk level, the government in Moscow on Tuesday announced a plan that will see the economy return to a budget surplus in 2017. Standard & Poor’s downgraded Russia’s rating to BB-plus late on Monday, a non-investment grade, for the first time since 2004, citing a slide in the ruble and weakening revenue from oil exports.

(AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky)MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian government has proposed cutting planned spending by 10 percent this year and 5 percent in all categories except military and social expenditures.
