PYATIGORSK, August 20 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov has criticizes North Caucasian republics for the high spendings for officials and their cars.
Speaking at the meeting of the government commission on the North Caucasian Federal District's economic development, he said that Chechnya was particularly wasteful to spend so much on officials' car service. In his words, the Chechen Republic is the leader for this. With the average number of 6 cars for a hundred public servants, in Chechnya the figure is 27. The republic accounts for about a half of all the cars belonging to public servants in the North Caucasus.
It is possible to optimize it, Siluanov said.
The minister also noted that the number of state servants in Russia was 18 for 10,000 citizens, while there were 21 in the North Caucasus and 46 in Ingushetia.
Siluanov criticized the size of expenditures for officials. On the average in Russia, it amounts to 1,500 roubles per 1,000 citizens, while it is 3,000 rbls in Chechnya and 2,000 in Kabardino-Balkaria.
