MOSCOW, October 28 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed a resolution allocating 40 billion rbls in subsidies to regions. The document is published on the government official website.
The funds are provided for 75 regions to compensate for a pay raise for budget-paid workers.
When distributing the funds, the government took into account the implementation of plans in the regions to improve efficiency and quality of services in the areas of public health, education, culture and social welfare, the government noted.
The subsidies totaled 100 billion roubles, and 60 billion were provided earlier this year for 78 regions.
Well-to-do regions -- Moscow, the Tyumen Region and the Khanty-Mansi and Yamalo-Nenets autonomous areas -- were not included in the subsidy program.
