MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed an order, which instructs state officials to pass the gifts they receive to the government.
The document reads state officials will have to inform within three days on the gifts they receive. The officials do not have a right to accept gifts worth over 3,000 rubles (about $1,000). Any gifts above the cost are to be passed to the government.
The gifts above the stated cost will be sold, and the money will go to the country’s budget, the document reads.
The new regulations are effective for federal and municipal level officials, the government says in its comments on the document.
