MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. The performance indicator of federal target programs remains low so far, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday.
Only 22 federal target programs may be considered efficient and deliverables under two programs are unsatisfactory, the prime minister said.
"According to estimates of the Economic Development Ministry, just 22 programs may be called efficient and deliverables are unsatisfactory for two programs," Medvedev said. "We need to think what to do with such programs in future, even understanding importance of expenses planned for them," he added.
The Russian government is also considering extension of the capitals legalization law for six months, the official said. "Essentially this is in pursuit of the president’s state of the nation address. The case in point is to extend the period for submission of the declaration within the amnesty framework for six months, until June 30, 2016," Medvedev done. The decision is made so that "everyone not yet set to use this mechanism may think once again and do that," he added.
