MOSCOW, May 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev urged to begin immediately the fulfillment of the instructions, which the president gave in the last few months and on May 7.
“We have no time to prepare for this work, the instructions should be fulfilled, despite a complicated period of forming the authorities,” the prime minister said at a meeting on this issue. “We should begin this work already today,” he pointed out.
Meanwhile, Medvedev noted that “not only members of the government, but the whole expert community should participate in these activities.” The Open Government was formed for the purpose, he said.
Medvedev offered to discuss the progress of the fulfillment of the instructions, which were given in the last few months. “They mainly concern the issues, which were discussed in the Open Government, particularly the development of competitiveness, the improvement of legislation on state service, counteraction to corruption and several other problems,” he elaborated. “The decrees, which the president signed on May 7, contained another part of instructions,” he added. “Both sets of instructions are tightly interrelated and are seeking to achieve some results in the acutest issues in the life of our citizens,” he underlined.
