MOSCOW, May 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has instructed the Finance Ministry to prepare and submit proposals by July 1, 2014 to lay off 10% of public servants, said the government official website which posted Medvedevs instructions upon results of his annual report on governments working results in 2013 at the State Duma.
The Prime Minister delivered the annual government report on April 22. The premier stated particularly to ponder another 10% cuts of public servants in regions and at the federal level, because Russia needs a modern, compact and effective state personnel oriented at peoples requests.
Meanwhile, Medvedev recalled he had already decided to lay off state officials by 20% several years ago. This was fulfilled better at some places and worse at some other places. I will put it straightforwardly that this is frequently done slower than we expected, he acknowledged.
According to the Federal State Statistics Service, employees of state authorities and local self-government bodies numbered 1,548,062 people in 2013, including 48,593 people at the federal level and 1,499,469 people at the regional level. Meanwhile, the average monthly salary of public servants in federal state authorities has made 98,400 robles. The average monthly salary of state officials at the regional level has reached 36,400 rubles and that of municipal employees - 33,600 rubles.
Good luck with bringing about improved efficiencies and budget savings in the federal service. I will be surprised if they actually occur.
We should do the opposite here. Lay off 90% of our public servants. The world would be “a better place”.
It is undeniably the kind of thing we should be doing here. Makes me wonder why. What is going on that they are doing this? Is the Russian economy in trouble?
10% is a pretty big deal.
As the next poster says, we should be looking at 90%. That’s probably a bit much considering the size of the military, but a great start would be 75%, with more in the shute.
Robert who? The New England what?
Russian President Vladimir Putin slyly declared Friday that he doesnt remember meeting Patriots owner Robert Kraft or pilfering the billionaires sparkly Super Bowl ring.
Putin three times raised wages to himself and Medvedev
The Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted the salary by 2,65 times. About it it is spoken in the decree of the head of state published on a site of the Kremlin on Monday, April 14. With the same coefficient the salary of the prime minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev will be increased also.
Couldn’t agree with you more cept that, “public servants”
Worthless bunch of leaches is more appt.
I’d like to see a 10% cut in federal, state, and local government per year until budgets are balanced and tax burdens are reduced. Government does many useful things, but just about nothing added to government in the past century is also useful.
In what world do we live in that Russia has a conservative government but we live under borderline communism??
