Explanation: Профицит (превышение доходов над расходами в бюджете, бюджетный избыток) is comparatively new term used in press or official documents to show the budgetary surplus against traditional deficit.
Financial reports usually refer to primary budget surplus or the surplus before paying interest and capital on government debt (первичный профицит).
Budget surplus is expressed in money terms or percent of GDP.
"The primary budget surplus is set to reach 6 % of GDP, and the overall balance surplus will amount to 2%..."
“Profitsit” is “budget surplus” (= the amount, by which the revenues exceed the expenditures). In this context, since the matter is clear, you can omit “budget”. Below is the way I would translate your sentence:
“Speaking about the results of the State Budget execution for the year 2000, the Government and its Ministry of Finance are stating, among their major achievements, the budget surplus of almost 1 billion Grivnas (917 million Grivnas).”
Hope that this helps.
