MOSCOW, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev has instructed the government until August 1 to apply anti-corruption standards set for civil servants to workers of non-budgetary funds and their families, says a national anti-corruption plan posted on the Kremlin website on Tuesday.
The Russian government has been instructed until August 1, 2012 to submit proposals to the Presidium of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Council on the order of applying anti-corruption standards set for civil servants and municipal workers to persons, temporarily employed in state organizations such as the Pension Fund, the Social Insurance Fund, the Federal Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund, and to their spouses and their under-age children.
Until October 1, 2012 the government is to adopt a legislative act, which obliges civil servants to inform about gifts given to them ex officio. The proposed legislative act is to stipulate the difference between a present given to a worker ex officio or in connection with the fulfillment of one’s professional duties; presents received in connection with protocol events, business trips or other official events. The law is also to specify a period of time, during which information about a present is to be provided, and the order of returning it, evaluating its cost and returning the profit to a corresponding budget and the order of reimbursement.
