MOSCOW, October 30 (Itar-Tass) - The Kremlin commission checking information about officials' incomes and spendings did not use bloggers' publications, Kremlin Administration Chief of Staff Sergei Ivanov told reporters after the meeting of the presidential anticorruption council. "There were no checks of bloggers' publications. There was no reason for it," he said.
At the same time, Ivanov noted that mass media did not pay enough attention to fight against corruption. He said incomes and spendings of officials could be checked following publications in media.
Presidential aide Yevgeny Shkolov said the process of checking declarations was continuing. "There may be new results," he said.
"We are in the process to create a system (of monitoring)," Ivanov added.
