Results The paper unveils the main problems and development areas of the national public financial management system in Russia. Despite the high level of institutionalization, which is targeted at transparency of the budgetary system of the Russian Federation, the development of tools intended to ensure the availability of budget information for all stakeholders, the involvement of citizens in the process of public financial flows management and their impact on political decisions are insignificant in this area. The paper also formulates the indications of public finance management.
