GORKI, December 4 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has criticized ministers for being late to office and urged them to follow the example of punctual businessmen.
"Members of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs(RSPP) are more disciplined than the ministers," Medvedev said. “Anyway, the RSPP members have been here for a long time already, while the ministers have just been coming,” Medvedev noted at a meeting with the RSPP members on Tuesday.
Nonetheless, Medvedev explained himself why the ministers were late for the meeting. "The weather is hard today, and there are not enough flash lights for everyone, therefore, they have been driving slowly,"Medvedev explained.
A heavy snowfall on Tuesday provoked huge traffic jams on Rublyovskoye highway west off Moscow, which leads to the residence of the Russian prime minister.
Vice-premier Vladislav Surkov, ministers of the Russian government Mikhail Abyzov, Sergei Dontsov, Alexander Konovalov are attending the meeting held by the Russian prime minister at his residence in Gorki.
